Is Your Stuff up to Snuff? Conditions for Success in Academic Peer Review


by Michèle Lamont — November 24, 2009

Based on her book How Professors Think: Inside the Curious World of Academic Judgment, sociologist Michèle Lamont discusses the role of emotions, interactions, and identities in influencing academic evaluation, including for tenure.
