Jones, Stephanie – Gender and Education, 2012
This manuscript draws from a 4-year feminist ethnographic study of eight young girls and their caretakers in a high-poverty, predominantly White, urban community in the USA. Themes of mothers, mothering, and motherhood were dominant across 4 years of data generation and in this article I focus on the girls' and mothers' narratives to explore…

Quinn, Jocey – Gender and Education, 2013
In their predominantly theoretical turn to the material, post-humanist feminists often focus on "nature", arguing that the nature/culture binary has collapsed and that fixed distinctions between human and non-human spheres no longer hold. Conversely, outdoor learning sees nature as a space where humans act and has been more concerned…

Forty-five years have passed since Kenya gained independence and almost 30 years since the feminist revolution ushered in a global gender and development agenda.

Clegg, Sue – Gender and Education, 2006
In a recent paper, members from the London Feminist Salon Collective reflected on the vexed problem of agency in poststructuralist theory and asked, "as feminist educational researchers, where do we go from here?" The issue remains pressing as agency, both individual and collective, is at the heart of the feminist, and indeed, all radical…

Gonick, Marnina – Gender and Education, 2007
This paper revisits the question of "voice" in the context of neo-liberal social and educational reform. "Voice" has been one of the key concepts of feminist and critical pedagogies in the theory and practice of producing social transformation. I argue in this paper, that the political effectiveness of this concept needs to be…

Following the invitation issued by the London Feminist Salon Collective in the pages of "Gender and Education", this paper offers further theoretical suggestions for understanding agency.

Martin, Jane – Gender and Education, 2011
A central principle of 1970s feminism was a concern with making women visible and the historical creation of women's public voices is an important methodological premise of feminist research. When written, biographies of female actors "recovered" from the condescension of posterity, can illuminate the telling of individual and collective…

Hughes, Christina; Lury, Celia – Gender and Education, 2013
This paper proposes an ecological methodology in order to re-think the concept of situatedness in ways that can take into account that we live in relation to, and are of, a more-and-other-than-human world. In doing so, the paper proposes that situatedness should be understood in terms of processes of co-invention that, fractally and recursively,…

Court, Marian – Gender and Education, 2007
In this article, prevailing professional, business and managerial discourses of team leadership are "troubled" by some feminist critiques and analyses of collectivity and gendered discursive relations of power. I draw on a study of primary school co-principalships to describe and reflect on Karen's (a pseudonym) accounts of her personal and shared…

The books, referred to as "Ophelia narratives," include Lyn Mikel Brown and Carol Gilligan's (1992) "Meeting at the Crossroads," Mary Pipher's (1994)…
