Abstract [en]

How to deal with gender, women, gender roles, feminism and gender equality in

teaching practices? 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


and gender in a wide range of educational contexts. The authors discuss

pedagogical, theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching



and gender. The books contain teaching material, reflections

on feminist

pedagogies, practical discussions about the development of gender-



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

in Europe today: increasing international mobility, growing importance of inter

disciplinarity 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


gender. (For titles see inside cover)
