Still Eating in the Kitchen

Still Eating in the Kitchen

The Marginalization of African American Faculty in Majority White Academic Governance

(p.165) Still Eating in the Kitchen

Carmen V. Harris

University of North Carolina Press

With an essay that challenges the notion that processes can ever be neutral, Carmen Harris addresses the issue of bureaucratic racism and the resultant marginalization of African American faculty in historically white colleges and universities through processes of faculty governance. The essay illuminates the consequences of tribalism and bias masquerading under the guise of professional objectivity in an environment in which overt racism is frowned upon but also one in which systems intended to thwart inequality are applied by members of the majority to the disadvantage of people of color. These purportedly neutral practices are a barrier to entry to an institution and manages opportunities not just for existing faculty but for potential new hires by establishing criteria and procedures for recruitment, hiring, advancing and terminating members.

Keywords:   Faculty governance, American Association of University Professors, bureaucratic racism, personnel processes, tenure practices
