Analysis of Signs and Symbols of Caring and Nurturing in Photographs of Female Teachers
Perlman, Edna Barromi
Journal of Visual Literacy, v33 n2 p53-74 2014
This study explores how teachers visualize their professional persona. It is based on six case studies of female teachers in Israel, who photographed themselves at work, focusing on images of ideal situations of teaching. The study explores the self-perceptions of the teachers, which led to the construction of the images, by analysis of the signs and visual information in the photographs and through interviews. Uses of body language, visual expressions of physical proximity to pupils and visual signs of gender, are related to. The notion of teaching as a practice of caring is discussed in its relation to visual feminine attributes
