Osgood, Jayne; Mohandas, Sid – Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, 2020
This paper attempts to open out investigations in ECEC by working beyond anthropocentric accounts of gender. Drawing upon feminist new materialist philosophies we ask whether it might be possible to reconfigure ideas about gender that recognise it as produced through everyday processes and material-affective entanglements. In order to do this, we…

Cousins, Thomas Anthony – Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, 2020
Attempting to encourage and retain male primary school teachers can lead to the 'glass escalator' phenomenon, the fast-tracked advancement that men receive in gender-atypical work. Currently, in primary schools, males are disproportionately represented in management positions making up 35% of senior staff, while conversely only making up 15% of…

Preschool teachers' domain-specific professional knowledge is assumed to play an important role in the quality of early childhood education and thus in young children's learning in different areas. Due to a lack of adequate instruments little is known about preschool teachers' science-specific knowledge. In order to develop such a test instrument,…

In this study, we touch on all these issues, but attempt to place them in a systemic-functional language framework and a cultural-historical learning one. First, we deal with some of…
