Hosey, Sara – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2014
Cara Hoffman's work enacts George Orwell's imperative to "pay attention to the obvious" (an idea that several sympathetic characters repeat in her 2011 novel "So Much Pretty"), probing aspects of twenty-first century life in the United States that have become so accepted as to be unremarkable, such as epidemic levels of…

Bondestam, Fredrik – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2011
For feminist literary critics and teachers writing about and teaching literature "after feminism," the path is potentially treacherous.

Like any good story, the Sufi tale places the listener squarely in the midst of life; that is, precisely where learning takes place. The tale pointed out that learning can be both exhilarating and painful. In college classrooms, teachers (and their students) are spared neither of these emotions when they engage in the learning process. In this…

Parker, Blaise Astra – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009

She certainly was not convinced she wanted…

For this essay, the author takes as an organizing premise Jodi O'Brien and Judith A. Howard's notion of responsible authority--that "teaching is a value-based activity" in which educators should be striving to engage students in academic pursuits in order to create a moral citizenry. That is, educators need to acknowledge that they wield the power…

Edwards, Wade – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2008
In "Teaching to Transgress," bell hooks is both welcoming and suspicious of those who would teach from a position that recognizes the limitations of personal experience. Teaching from experience can lead to a difficult and defensive essentialism that relegates students and teachers alike to categories and "types," and, as hooks argues, can obscure…
