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.

A high school sexual harassment lawsuit in Sweden is used as a case study to…

Asplund, Stig-Börje; Pérez Prieto, Héctor – Gender and Education, 2018
In the majority of the research on boys' and young men's relation to reading, it is argued that boys and young men read too little, read poorly and in all the wrong ways. However, few studies focus on how boys and young men read the texts they do encounter. In particular, there is a lack of research on young men of working-class background, whose…

Åberg, Magnus; Olin-Scheller, Christina – Gender and Education, 2018
Adopting a critical literacy perspective in teaching is about how experiences, social contexts, languages, learning and power relations interact in language development.

Spierings, Niels; Lubbers, Marcel; Zaslove, Andrej – Gender and Education, 2017
Populist radical right (PRR) parties have attracted anti-migration voters by claiming to serve the interests of nationally defined in-groups. Recently, several European PRR parties have shifted focus from protecting traditional values to protecting so-called modern Western values, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights. Here, we…

Using the perspective of Ahmed's critical feminist phenomenology, this article aims to explore the…

This article investigates the prevailing social inertia of vocational training. Previous research indicates that gendered social norms contribute to sustaining gender segregation.

Mattsson, Tina – Gender and Education, 2015
Gender inequality in academia might be understood as an effect of the belief of a contradiction between woman and science, which make it difficult for women to appropriate the right to author and authorise acts of knowing and thinking in science. In relation to this concern, the aim of this article is to explore how a group of successful women…

This article explores practices of othering through formations of normative sameness in discussion-based seminar classrooms. It takes literary scholar Stanley Fish's question, "Is there a text in this class, or is it just us?", back into the classroom to explore the formation of a "just us," an imagined homogeneous interpretive…
