TWU Book Series slates first release on Oct. 4

Pioneering Women: Leaders and Trailblazers, the Texas Woman’s University book series, will release its first book on Monday, Oct. 4. “Making Space for Women: Stories from Trailblazing Women of NASA’s Johnson Space Center” explores how careers for women at the space center have changed over the past 50 years as the workforce became more diverse and fields once closed to women began to open.

The TWU Book Series operates under the auspices of the Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership as an interdisciplinary project focusing on the lives and work of trailblazing women in fields such as the arts, sciences, politics, business, education, the military, health sciences, and community services.

The book series is a sponsoring institute for Texas A&M Press, which assists in peer reviews and publication.

You may submit your own book proposal for consideration. The series is not limited to scholarly works; the editorial committee welcomes monographs, edited collections, biographies, and more. Visit the TWU Book Series website for more information.

The book series is funded through a gift by former TWU Regent Nancy Paup and her husband, Thaddeus, both of whom are longtime supporters and donors to Texas Woman’s University.
