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…

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…

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. The principal academic governance body within universities, the academic board (also known as the academic senate or faculty senate), therefore plays a key role in enabling universities to conduct their core business.…

Amsler, Sarah; Motta, Sara C. – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we offer a critique of neoliberal power from the perspective of the gendered, sexualised, raced and classed politics of motherhood in English universities. By using dialogical auto-ethnographic methods to examine our own past experiences as full-time employed mother-academics, we demonstrate how feminist academic praxis can not only…

Naskali, Päivi; Keskitalo-Foley, Seija – Gender and Education, 2019
This article analyses university pedagogy by contrasting mainstream pedagogy and feminist pedagogical thought. The data consist of two textbooks, and we investigate what kinds of teaching, learning and knowledge the textbooks construct and what kinds of student and teacher positions they suggest. The inquiry shows that learning in the textbooks is…

Fannin, Maria; Perrier, Maud – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we discuss how 'with-woman' midwifery and doula care provide resources for rethinking the theory and practice of academic supervision from a feminist perspective. We identify how the tradition of accompaniment in both birth work and academia is under threat given the economic reforms facing public sector education and health care.…

Bryan, Nathaniel – Gender and Education, 2019
Play is a gendered activity among young children, especially boys. Boys often tend to be more actively engaged in the (re)production of gendered play. However, most research studies and conceptual papers have misread, ignored, devalued, or scrutinized the gendered ways Black boys engage in play. This idea is particularly true for Black boys who…

Sandretto, Susan; Nairn, Karen – Gender and Education, 2019
Educationalists lament the resilience of the so-called 'boy crisis', despite research that demonstrates only some boys are in crisis, as well as some girls. The boy crisis in New Zealand shows no sign of abating, partly due to popular rhetorical literature in the form of parenting advice books. In particular, authors Celia Lashlie and Nigel Latta…

Horton, Paul – Gender and Education, 2019
This article considers the ways in which school bullying is both gendered and embodied. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in two lower-secondary schools in northern Vietnam, the article focuses on the experiences of one ninth-grade boy, who was regularly bullied by his classmates, and whose experiences of bullying appeared to be embodied…

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,"…

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…

Green, Dari; Pulley, Tifanie; Jackson, Melinda; Martin, Lori Latrice; Fasching-Varner, Kenneth J. – Gender and Education, 2018
The number of Black females enrolled in colleges and universities has grown in recent years, particularly at predominately white institutions (PWIs). Currently, research on the rise of Black females at PWIs is limited and fails to adequately address the emotional, social, and mental well-being of these students. Recent studies also largely ignore…
