Shah, Payal; Khurshid, Ayesha – Gender and Education, 2019
In contemporary times, the status of Muslim women has become a lens to approach and engage with Muslim societies.

This paper presents the work of three researchers in a self-study on researcher positionality using the reflective practice and pedagogy of correspondence as preparation for future work with mapuche women in Chile.

Uchendu, Uchechukwu; Roets, Griet; Vandenbroeck, Michel – Gender and Education, 2019

In that sense, the study of gender…

Davies, Adam W. J.; Vipond, Evan; King, Ariana – Gender and Education, 2019
Schools are often sites of surveillance for students as behaviors are governed and regulated by gendered norms and sexed expectations. For transgender and gender non-conforming students, school environments can produce anxiety as students are categorized into gender binaries. This article draws from Canadian policy in public schools and higher…

Gillander Gådin, Katja; Stein, Nan – Gender and Education, 2019
Sexual harassment has become so frequent and ubiquitous in schools that these behaviours have become normalised and expected. In order to prevent the re-enactment and perpetuation of this problem, it is important to explore processes that contribute to its existence. A high school sexual harassment lawsuit in Sweden is used as a case study to…

Rowlands, Julie – Gender and Education, 2019
While academic governance does not produce teaching and research, it provides the conditions that enable them to take place.
