Jones, Stephanie – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2012
Drawing from a larger ethnographic study, this article engages post-structural theories of language and critical feminist theories of social class to examine two fourth-grade, White, working-poor girls' narratives about their urban neighbourhood in the United States. The author argues that young girls should be perceived as social theorists…

Gouthro, Patricia A. – Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, 2019
This article explores the importance of sustaining a rich and vibrant discourse of theory to inform the practice of adult education.

Grierson, Elizabeth Mary – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Michel Foucault showed by his genealogical method that history is random. It comprises sites of disarray and dispersal. In those sites, Simone de Beauvoir wrote philosophy through lived experience of woman as Other in relation to man as the Absolute. Here lies a fecund site for revisionist analysis of female cultural production and its relevance…

Firth, Rhiannon; Robinson, Andrew – Gender and Education, 2016
This paper looks back on the methodology and experience of feminist consciousness-raising (CR) in the 1970s, in relation to the current re-emergence of feminism. It constructs an argument that a new wave of CR is desirable so as to construct new forms of feminist pedagogy and activism. The paper will argue that contemporary feminism in the UK and…

Scraton, Sheila – Sport, Education and Society, 2018
This article explores how our understandings of gender and Physical Education (PE) have developed since the publication of "Shaping Up to Womanhood" in 1992. I reflect back on my research which, using qualitative methodology and a socialist feminist lens, explored dominant gender relations in the teaching of girls' PE in English…

McLeod, Julie – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Late modern social theories and critiques of neoliberalism have emphasised the regulatory and negative aspects of responsibility, readily associating it with self-responsibility or analytically converting it to the notion of responsibilisation. This article argues for stepping back from these critiques in order to reframe responsibility as a…

Amsler, Sarah; Motta, Sara C. – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we offer a critique of neoliberal power from the perspective of the gendered, sexualised, raced and classed politics of motherhood in English universities. By using dialogical auto-ethnographic methods to examine our own past experiences as full-time employed mother-academics, we demonstrate how feminist academic praxis can not only…

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…

Grotlüschen, Anke – Studies in the Education of Adults, 2018
Global Competence is a domain developed for PISA 2018. We ask whether it ignores voices from the Global South. Criteria are taken from Robertson, known for the theory of glocalisation as well as the educational scientist Seitz. Further criteria are added from a 21st century perspective. The discourse analysis uses documents available to the public…

Eastman, Nicholas J.; Anderson, Morgan; Boyles, Deron – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Simply put, charter schools have not lived up to their advocates' promise of equity. Using examples of tangible civil rights gains of the twentieth century (e.g. "Brown v. Board," "Lau v. Nichols") and extending feminist theories of invisible labor to include the labor of democracy, the authors argue that the charter movement…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2018
Within the broad Freirean paradigm that dominates critical pedagogy, there is a tendency to assume that affects such as love, hope, and empathy as well as revolutionary agency are naturally occurring in all human beings and that conscientization will eventually lead to empowerment for change (Amsler 2011). However, it is not clear how the workings…

McKenna, Emma – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2015
In the second-wave women's movement in Canada (1965-1985), the rhetoric of ''freedom'' and ''choice'' occupied a prominent position in public discourses. Waged as rallying points to resist entrenched forms of gender inequality in all areas of social, economic, and political culture, this language asserted a desire for an alternative social order…

Gold, Alexandra – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2016
When Alexandra Gold described her composition course: one that situates feminist and queer theory as a lens through which to view, analyze, and discuss contemporary television, a male acquaintance responded by saying he would not pay for that class. Another female acquaintance assured Gold that although she had loved a similar class at her Ivy…

Wallace, Maria F. G. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2017
Traditionally, the humanist narrative of "novice versus veteran teacher" serves as an efficient way to understand and produce an experienced workforce in the current neoliberal educational climate. This standard approach to workforce development has hit science teachers especially hard as they work within a culture of crisis for ensuring…
