Wellstead, Peta – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
Much has changed in the information environment since the years of Harris' review. It is important to mention the significance of the impact of technology that has rendered the work of librarians and information workers almost unknowable to those teaching in the period 1965-1983. As a result of these reviews and technological changes, many…

May, Josephine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2010
The 1920s was an ambivalent decade in Australia: on the one hand Australians were still reeling from the disastrous effects of the Great War and on the other they were witnessing unprecedented and exciting technological and social changes brought about by modernity.

Gander, Michelle – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2010
Much has been written about the glass ceiling and pay differentials in higher and further education (HE, FE) for women academics (McTavish and Miller 2009, Rees 2007) but very little about discrepancies for women "professional managers" within UK higher education. Professional managers as a term needs to be defined as universities call…

Hopcroft, Rosemary L. – Social Forces, 2009
In this article I argue that evolutionary theorizing can help sociologists and feminists better understand gender inequality. Evolutionary theory explains why control of the sexuality of young women is a priority across most human societies both past and present. Evolutionary psychology has extended our understanding of male violence against…

Barrera, Magdalena – Bilingual Review, 2009
This essay examines the working-class Mexican experience as represented in Jorge Ulica's "Cronicas Diabolicas," which he published between 1916 and 1926. What unites the wide-ranging subject matter of the chronicles is the author's resolute interest in maintaining his working-class compatriots' cultural and ideological ties to Mexico.…

Based on the work of Bourdieu, this paper analyses how far formal education within a revolutionary setting can act as a "strategy-generating" institution in terms of enabling women to aspire to and achieve goals they would not even have envisaged pre-revolution. In making its case, it draws on the examples of three revolutionary…

Educators interested in social change have been using an analysis of privilege in their gender and anti-racist work for some time.

Schwier, Richard A. – Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, 2006
In this commentary, Richard Schwier draws observations of what he believes are key issues in e-learning that come directly out of "A Review of e-Learning in Canada." However, much of the commentary is consumed by topics that haven't yet generated the volume or type of research necessary to allow the kind of compressed scrutiny that this…

Frederickson, Mary – History Teacher, 2004
Many historians agree that the United States survey has been in critical need of a new paradigm for some time, a paradigm in which chronology does not dominate and students can learn about multiple viewpoints and competing historical narratives, one in which gender and multiculturalism are expanded beyond male/female, beyond black/white/ brown.…
