Teaching with Gender. European Women’s Studies inInternational and Interdisciplinary Classrooms. A book series by ATHENA: Teaching Gender, Diversity and Urban Space
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender Studies, Center for Gender Studies.
2009 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

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


gender roles, feminism and gender equality? The ATHENA thematic network

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 traditional programmes of

higher education. These books will be indispensable tools for educators who take

seriously the challenge of teaching with gender. (For titles see inside cover.)

Abstract [en]

This is a collective volume presenting a theoretical framework and diverse

educational tools that can be used to incorporate gender and sexuality into

Spatial Disciplines and the concepts of space and urbanity into Women’s and

Gender Studies. The book was conceived in recognition of the fact that the

concepts of space, place and urbanity have a rather minor presence within European

Women’s and Gender Studies. Likewise, the concepts of gender and sexuality(ies)

are poorly covered within the “spatial” disciplines and university departments. This

“double” absence is the raison d’être of this volume and underlies our proposals

for developing effective educational and teaching tools in this field.

The study of multilayered, complex and contradictory situations in contemporary

European cities, where gender/sexuality intersects with other axes of difference

and power, is crucial to the development of a multicultural teaching ethos and will

facilitate students’ understanding of these contemporary issues both inside and

outside the classroom.
