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. We start from the assumption that research with and on indigenous groups has a historical debt to consider given the ways in which it…

Arur, Aditi; DeJaeghere, Joan – Gender and Education, 2019
Life skills have become the foci of many girls' education initiatives because they are assumed to empower girls to negotiate oppressive gender norms constraining their lives. Often these programmes give a singular attention to gender norms, despite other interlocking oppressive structures and norms. Although postcolonial feminist perspectives in…

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.

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. 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 inquiry shows that learning in the textbooks is…

Namatende-Sakwa, Lydia – Gender and Education, 2019
Research within science textbooks has dominantly focused on examining explicit representations of women and men using quantitative methodology.

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…

This article is concerned with gendered spaces as they emerge from exploring Emirati female learners' spatiality in a single-gender context. By conducting ethnographic research and utilising Lefebvre's triad of perceived, conceived and lived space for the analysis and categorisation of students' spaces, three types of gendered spaces emerged:…
