Feminist Pedagogy: Building Community Accountability
Fuller, Laurie; Russo, Ann
Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, v26 n2-3 p179-197 2016
As antiviolence activists and university professors teaching and learning about violence prevention and feminist movements, authors Laurie Fuller and Ann Russo write that they are inspired by the collaborative visioning of Critical Resistance and Incite! Women of Color Against Violence with regard to ending violence without reproducing it. Fuller and Russo have committed themselves to taking a vision of collective commitment based on guaranteeing the survival and care of all peoples into their women's and gender studies classrooms. They strive to create feminist community that practices building reciprocal and accountable relationships across the power lines produced by interlocking systems of racism, patriarchy, capitalism, and heteronormativity. They seek to develop and enhance our skills and imagination for collective responses to everyday oppression and violence that do not rely on policing or punishment. In this essay they share stories from their classrooms where using these teaching and learning skills demonstrates the possibilities and difficulties inherent in practicing collective responses to everyday oppression and violence. They draw from the work of small and large feminist groups across the country, inspired by the visionary work of Incite!
