Rather, it is a lived reality, a long-term project in which I have been subject and object, participant and observer, in charge and out of control of my life project. It is a personal map that frames the issues I raise in this book. The often circuitous pathways of a woman’s academic career, the geographical locations and institutional contexts of her educational and work histories, her generation, family circumstances, and personal “identikit” shape her experiences in higher education, her theoretical and methodological choices, and her political take on the life around her in the academy.

In this book, I focus on women in higher education in four Southeast Asian countries: Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.
