Feminist Imperative(s) in Music and Education: Philosophy, Theory, or What Matters Most
Gould, Elizabeth
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v43 n2 p130-147 Mar 2011
A historically feminized profession, education in North America remains remarkably unaffected by feminism, with the notable exception of pedagogy and its impact on curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to describe characteristics of feminism that render it particularly useful and appropriate for developing potentialities in education and music education. As a set of flexible methodological tools informed by Gilles Deleuze's notions of philosophy and art, I argue feminism may contribute to education's becoming more efficacious, reflexive, and reflective of the values of its participants. Its impetus involves "feminist imperative(s)" to help in the sense articulated by Elizabeth Grosz: to provoke thought, challenge, and problematize.
