Karlsson Sjögren, Åsa; Larsson, Esbjörn; Rimm, Stefan – History of Education, 2019

Reformers are increasingly calling for and adopting practice-based approaches to teacher preparation, with particular emphasis on identifying and centering core practices. In this article, we argue that organizing teacher education around core practices brings its own risks, including the risk of peripheralizing equity and justice. Situating our…

Öchsner, Marco; Murray, Georgina – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
We examine the emergence of the 'postfeminist' sensibility from feminist theory and praxis, and its relation and relevance to education. Analytical frameworks such as postfeminism and intersectionality have given equal weight to recognition-based struggles, such as those based on sexual, racial, class-based, gender-related identities. We follow…

Wang, Weijian – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2019
This article uses a queer lens in an intersectional analysis of students' schooling experiences in rural China. I argue that a queer perspective has been largely neglected and issues related to sexuality have not been carefully investigated in Chinese educational contexts. Drawing on queer theory and an intersectional framework, I re-interpret one…
