Pedagogical Engagements: Feminist Resistance to the Militarization of Education
Armato, Michael; Fuller, Laurie; Matthews, Nancy A.; Meiners, Erica R.
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v35 n2 p103-126 2013
According to the authors, in 2008 and 2009 a coalition of faculty, anchored by Women's Studies, challenged a proposal to bring United States Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) courses onto their urban public university campus. This proposal, initially approved by the faculty governance advisory committee on academic affairs, was ultimately voted down by the same committee after months of work by the coalition to educate members about the larger implications of permitting the military into their institution and curriculum. However, the provost, the university's chief academic officer, overturned this recommendation, and permitted the ROTC to offer courses for university credit at off-campus locations. This article is the authors' attempt to analyze how the issues that emerged in their local site reflect broader struggles in their highly militarized society. Their aim is to cultivate others' imaginative pathways and serve as an analytical roadmap for feminist educators and activists and share strategies in campaigns for peace and justice.
