Between the Lines: Gender in the Reception of Texts by School Children in Rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Balfour, Robert
Gender and Education, v15 n2 p183-99 Jun 2003
Explores the interface between literature, gender, culture, and language within an educational context. Examines the responses of Zulu boys and girls to the introduction of a new curriculum that integrated language and literary study in a rural school in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Specifically, it shows how reading can lead to a more complex and critical notion of how gender portends differential access to power. (SM)
