Young Ukrainian Woman

Some time ago, I co-authored an article with an older male scholar. Today, I discovered that there was a published review of the article where the male co-author was referred to as “Professor [his name]” and I was referred to as “a young Ukrainian woman scholar.” I wasn’t all that young when it was published (I was over 30 years old) and I had been a citizen of Canada for years. I don’t bill myself as Ukrainian anywhere in my scholarship.

It’s bizarre and not very pleasant to see one discussed in this bizarre way in a scholarly publication.
