Interlocking Systems of Power, Privilege, and Oppression in Adult Higher Education Classes.
Tisdell, Elizabeth J.
Adult Education Quarterly, v43 n4 p203-26 Sum 1993
Observations of classes taught by a male and a female professor, interviews, and document analysis examined forms of resistance and reproduction in professors' and students' roles. Students benefiting from interlocking systems of privilege have more power in the classroom. Male professor exerted more control than the female. Middle-aged women with more education participated more, especially in classes valuing affective knowledge. (SK)
