In this article, we embrace a southern perspective in feminist theory while embarking on a genealogical analysis of gender constructs in research about Igbo women in South-Eastern Nigeria. In that sense, the study of gender…

Blaikie, Fiona – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2018
Visual and cultural identities are situated in habitus, social theory on the body and clothing.

Mackinlay, Elizabeth – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
In this paper, the author is going to turn around and around ideas about feminist pedagogy and feminist politics in the academy in a similar way to take us to the kind of "social somewhere" of which Barone and Eisner write, to look at the same material in familiar and unusual ways--here a fiction, there a fanciful retelling of facts,…

Di Chiro, Giovanna – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
One thing about which there is widespread consensus is that the earth and its inhabitants are in social and environmental peril.

This article discusses the geo-political operations of student resistance in global feminisms classrooms, a topic that is largely ignored in the feminist pedagogies literature, where a generic understanding of the feminist teacher as a white, American and/or Western, and upper-class PhD seems to dominate. Given that the number of minority faculty…

Henry, Wilma J. – Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, 2010
The popularity of hip-hop among young Black college women, coupled with the deluge of negative and positive messages in this culture regarding these women's identity, signals an opportunity for the arrival of a contemporary, culturally relevant epistemology--hip-hop feminism. Through the lens of Black feminist theory, this article explores hip-hop…

The development of gendered identities during early childhood and youth occurs in a context of "body culture" and the hyper-visibility of "perfect" bodies, which align with traditional gender ideals. Embodied methods can assist to make complexity more visible, and to allow participants to see fluidity, shifts, and becoming.…
