Ramirez-Dhoore, Dora – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2011
Today, after many years of making it through new musical genres and trends, "rancheras" are not only about the appreciation of music, but also about the sociocultural issues present within the individual listening to this music. Whether it be the person who is driving down the street with the radio blaring and the car thumpin', the…

White, Aaronette M. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2011
Intersectionality takes into account how inequalities of race, gender, class, and sexuality "intersect," or work in combined ways, in the lives of Black women and other women of color.

Mahraj, Katy – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
It is confusing to be a feminist student. Deconstruction is "de rigueur"; reconstruction less so. Awareness rises while answers recede. Feminist students seek out learning experiences that disrupt, empower, and make them feminist students not only by what they learn, but also by how they learn, by the pedagogy in which they engage. Certainly there…

Magnet, Shoshana; Diamond, Shaindl – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
The affective realm--including sorrow, pain, ecstasy, vulnerability, joy, and rage--is a central component of feminist teaching and learning. Feminist classrooms are spaces where strong feelings are raised, paradigms shift, and ruptures are created. Coming to feminist consciousness may involve grief, anger, and sadness for students. Speaking about…

Hottinger, Sara – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
There is a widespread awareness in the American culture that women do not pursue careers in mathematics-related fields in equal numbers to men.

Chawansky, Megan – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
Most of the students who are taking the author's sport sociology courses can easily identify the problematic ways in which women's athletic events and bodies are covered within the sports sections of newspapers, magazines, Web sites, and television shows. These students are less able to understand how the heterosexual male sporting experience…

Macomber, Kris; Rusche, Sarah Nell – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
As teachers, the authors' lessons about contemporary racial inequality are complicated and contradicted by the rhetoric of color-blindness--the belief that race no longer matters for determining life chances--entrenched in the culture. Students remain attracted to notions of racism as a problem of the "past" and often reject the idea that racism…

Weitz, Rose – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
A common (although not universal) goal of feminist teachers is to create a "safe environment" in the classroom. The meaning of that term, however, varies considerably--some hope students will feel they can share personal feelings and experiences without fear of judgment, some that students will feel they can state their opinions without fear of…

In recent years, "pre-code" films have been re-discovered and applauded by film scholars and feminists. The term refers to the period between 1929 and 1934 when many Hollywood studios openly disregarded the censorship restrictions of the Hays Code. Named after censorship czar William H. Hays, the Code forbade nudity, cursing, sexual innuendo,…

This article documents the authors' efforts over the last several years to move themselves as well as their undergraduate women's studies students beyond the constraints of the Marxist legacy, in which class immediately registers as working class.

Weber, Brenda R. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
The ways in which both postfeminism and neoliberalism contest the legitimacy of traditional feminist dogma, which is to say second-wave principles and practices, becomes particularly acute in the classroom. Feminist pedagogies have largely been predicated on two socio-political givens that postfeminist and neoliberal logics disallow: (1) that…
