Gender and Emotions in Relationships: A Group of Teachers Recalling Their Own Teachers
Uitto, Minna; Estola, Eila
Gender and Education, v21 n5 p517-530 Sep 2009
This narrative inquiry analyses the memories of a group of female teachers telling about their own teachers. We ask how gender and emotions are intertwined to teacher-student relationships. Gender was present in the stories where the teachers described being a schoolgirl in relationship with a teacher and told about their teachers as women and men. The collective process of recalling evoked the emotions experienced as students, but these emotions were also interpreted in the present context. When recalling, the teachers were reconstructing the past in the light of the present and the future. The article highlights the significance for teachers reflecting on their own educational histories. (Contains 6 notes.)
