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.

However, while books offer children the imaginative ability to create their own worlds, normative gender can manifest in characters and stories. The study described in this article draws upon "disruptive" storytimes with 114 preschool children, interviews with 20 parents and…

Henward, Allison S.; MacGillivray, Laurie – Gender and Education, 2014
Children's experiences and understandings are often marginalised in discussions of their own television viewing. Moreover, rarely is attention paid to the meaning children make "from" and "with" the ideas and images in media, much less in horror movies. This inquiry examines the horror media talk of a preschool girl in a poor…

Van Laere, Katrien; Vandenbroeck, Michel; Roets, Griet; Peeters, Jan – Gender and Education, 2014
Despite the political and academic debate on the demands for more male workers in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC), no European country has reached the benchmark set for 2006 to have 20% male early childhood workers. This has predominantly been countered by challenging the idea that care for the youngest implies an activity "that…

Mallozzi, Christine A.; Galman, Sally Campbell – Gender and Education, 2014
A history of framing the teaching of young children as a matter of "natural" female aptitude has led a number of researchers and educators to oversimplify men's experiences as a foil or antidote to the ills of schooling. In this qualitative study of men, women, and "feminisation" in early education and care environments,…
