Constructing a Male Feminist Pedagogy: Authority, Practice, and Authenticity in the Composition Classroom
Breeze, William
Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, v18 n1 p59-73 2007
The following essay is a discussion of the author's work of becoming a male feminist teacher in the face of conservative views of feminism as well as skepticism from female (and male) students. He examines how authority (of knowledge) and authenticity (of experience) inform and impact the feminist practice of a male writing teacher. He concentrates on a course he regularly teaches, English 306, Women and Writing, a junior level course that is one of several offered to fulfill students' composition requirement. (Contains 2 notes.)
