Gender, Forced Migration and Education: Identities and Experiences of Refugee Women Teachers
Kirk, Jackie
Gender and Education, v22 n2 p161-176 Mar 2010
Drawing on narrative data from women teachers in a refugee camp in northern Ethiopia, this article explores how women's lived experiences of being teachers in a very local context are shaped within and against globalised geographies. Particular attention is paid to the forces of forced migration, to the complexities of local-global economies and their interplay with the social context and gendered relations of the camp environment. The article begins with a brief description of the conceptual framing in relation to understanding women teachers' lives and continues to describe the context and the research methodology. Research findings are presented and then discussed in sections of broader "reflections" and "concluding thoughts". (Contains 1 note and 1 table.)
