Benjamin contributes to "Women and Fairness: Navigating an Unfair World"

Deanna Benjamin, senior lecturer in College Writing and assistant dean in Arts & Sciences, is a contributing author for Women and Fairness: Navigating an Unfair World, an anthology published earlier this year by Waxmann Verlag. 

Women and Fairness features scholarly contributors from across disciplines and "ask[s] fundamental questions concerning how women handle the manifold impediments placed before them as they simply attempt to live full human lives." Per the publisher's website, "The collection explores narratives of women – real and fictional – who fight against these barriers, who succumb to them, who remain unaware of them, or choose to ignore them." 

Benjamin's piece, "Writing Someone Else’s Story: Entitlement and Empathy in Maxine Hong Kingston’s 'No Name Woman,'" is featured in Part III of the anthology, "Women in the World: Telling Women’s Stories." The publication is available in open access.
