Brigley Thompson, Zoë – Gender and Education, 2020
Critics of safe spaces in campus teaching often fail to understand the complexity of instructors' practices in teaching controversial topics. Beginning with recent controversy regarding safe spaces in the higher education classroom, this paper explores strategies for fostering more complex learning when teaching classes on sensitive topics, whilst…

Spanò, Emanuela – Gender and Education, 2020
This contribution explores how different policy discourses produce site-specific representations and self-representations of gender and leadership, which may reveal forms of subjectivation as well as spaces of resistance to hegemonic discourses. I will consider two different Higher Education policy systems: the UK system that since the 1980s has…

McGregor, Kristidel – Gender and Education, 2020
In recent educational discourse, public schools can be seen as sites of feminine power, as the majority of teachers are female and some gains have been made in girls' school achievement. However, some theorists argue that schools are too feminine, and thus boys' achievement is at risk. This article refutes this claim, and shows that schools are…

Nicolazzo, Z.; Jourian, T. J. – Gender and Education, 2020
In the United States, the academic discipline of higher education has emerged as a site in which transgender scholars have begun to engage. Transgender scholars have begun to disrupt the normative logics of epistemological trans oppression, forcing those in higher education to contend with us, our work, and the possibilities therein. And yet, the…

Belliappa, Jyothsna Latha – Gender and Education, 2020
This paper employs an autobiographical approach to reflect on some limitations of conventional academic conferences in creating community and supporting deep learning. By and large conventional large conferences tend to be premised on what Brazilian educator Paulo Freire calls the banking model of education and therefore frequently reproduce…

Henderson, Emily F.; Moreau, Marie-Pierre – Gender and Education, 2020
This article explores how academics with caring responsibilities negotiate the mobility imperative, with specific reference to attending conferences. We argue that, in the neoliberal and 'careless' context of higher education, negotiating conflicting identities of academic and carer are fraught with tensions for carers as they try to reconcile the…

Flores, Nina M. – Gender and Education, 2020
At the time of writing, the reach of #MeToo continues unfolding. Frank revelations about experiences of sexual harassment and sexual assault reach well into the academic sphere, with stories emerging across disciplines, regions, and statuses within the academy. The momentum and urgency of this moment carries with it the potential for seriously…

Phipps, Alison – Gender and Education, 2020
This paper situates sexual harassment and violence in the neoliberal university. Using data from a 'composite ethnography' representing twelve years of research, I argue that institutional inaction on these issues reflects how they are 'reckoned up' in the context of gender and other structures. The impact of disclosure is projected in market…

Meier, Markus D.; Diefenbach, Heike – Gender and Education, 2020
The OECD's Programme of International Student Assessment known as PISA, including the Gender Report published in 2015, is a well-received project and its findings keep being transferred into educational policy development. Its quantitative methodology and the sheer volume of data gathered from around 5,100,000 students from 65 countries seem to…

Cahill, Caitlin; Alberto Quijada Cerecer, David; Reyna Rivarola, Alonso R.; Hernández Zamudio, José; Alvarez Gutiérrez, Leticia – Gender and Education, 2019
How might participatory creative praxes make visible a politics of critical care and new imaginaries for resisting the 'school-to-sweatshop pipeline'? Drawing upon arts-based participatory action research processes led by the urgent concerns of young people of color based in Salt Lake City, Utah, we consider the role of cultural production in…

Bone, Jane – Gender and Education, 2019
The concept of domesticity plays out in early childhood educational settings and has a long tradition. Domesticity in its pre-domestic, domestic and post-domestic phases is used here as a site for reconsidering the role of Maria Montessori. The ideas put forward here are intended as a provocation and methodologically the device of constructing an…

Dyer, Hannah – Gender and Education, 2019
In this article, I contend that underneath the 2015 sex-ed debates in Ontario are deep-seated, psycho-socially entrenched problems related to thinking about childhood sexuality. I consider how the topic of sex-ed for children, over and above its actual curricular lessons, is marshaled to accomplish the work of the adult's psycho-social needs.…

Lindgren, Anne-Li – Gender and Education, 2019
Sex education has been a major concern that has run in parallel with the creation of the modern concept of childhood (innocence) in Western societies. When priests opposed sex education for children, teachers and physicians advocated the need for education. In Sweden, in the early twentieth century, two female physicians wrote a prize-winning…

Quiltmaking has historically been an art form and socio-political tool among African-American women. This paper will examine quiltmaking among African-American women as a radical form of pedagogy that is grounded in an ethic of care. From the historical roots of slavery to contemporary social movements like "Black Lives Matter,"…

Uchendu, Uchechukwu; Roets, Griet; Vandenbroeck, Michel – Gender and Education, 2019
Southern feminist theorists make a pertinent call for the democratisation of knowledge between the North and the South. 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…
