Abstract [en]

How can educators (teachers, professors, trainers) address issues of gender,


gender roles, feminism and gender equality? The ATHENA thematic


brings together specialists in women’s and gender studies, feminist

research, women’s rights, gender equality and diversity. In the book series

Teaching with Gender’ the partners in this network have collected articles on a

wide range of teaching practices in the field of gender. The books in this series

address challenges

and possibilities of teaching about women and gender in a wide

range of educational contexts. The authors discuss the pedagogical, theoretical

and political dimensions of learning and teaching on women and gender. The

books in this series contain teaching material, reflections on feminist pedagogies

and practical discussions about the development of gender-sensitive curricula

in specific fields. All books address the crucial aspects of education in Europe

today: increasing international mobility, the growing importance of interdisciplinarity

and the many practices of life-long learning and training that take place outside the


programmes of higher education. These books will be indispensable

tools for educators who take seriously the challenge of teaching with gender.

Abstract [en]

This collection of essays moves from a nodal point that regards the process

of constructing

women’s “nomadic” identities as informed by the notions of


and cultural dislocation, transcultural hibridity, history,

loss, memory,

contamination and their effect in the subject’s perception of the Real. Within this

frame of thought, writing the experience of the

ontological “travelling” and


is also understood as political narrative and as one of the essential

tools for promoting

critical knowledge and feminist pedagogy. The teaching

of autobiographical


becomes crucial either as a starting point of


or a field force

of analysis. The book reveals that political meaning

and identity-construction

are extremely important to understand how the Self


from the inner sphere to the public one, searching for recognition and


while developing

the awareness

of interdependence and vulnerability.
