The PhD and the Autonomous Self: Gender, Rationality and Postgraduate Pedagogy.
Johnson, Lesley; Lee, Alison; Green, Bill
Studies in Higher Education, v25 n2 p135-47 Jun 2000
Explores ideas of autonomy and the independent scholar that underpin traditional practices of postgraduate pedagogy, particularly PhD programs in the humanities and social sciences. Finds practices underlain by the gendered nature of ideas of autonomy and the paradoxical nature of the processes intended to produce the autonomous scholar self. Offers ideas for addressing these problems in doctoral education. (Author/DB)
