2009 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
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
women and gender in a wide range of educational contexts. The authors discuss
pedagogical, theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching on
and gender. The books in this series contain teaching material, reflections
on feminist pedagogies, practical discussions about the development of gendersensitive
curricula in specific fields. All books address the crucial aspects of
in Europe today: increasing international mobility, 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 serious the challenge of
teaching with gender.
The concept of intersectionality is at the heart of debates about the future of equality
policies in Europe. How do different identities interact and affect the opportunities
for individuals and groups in society? Public policy used to focus on one or
another aspect of equality, such as gender, sexual orientation or physical abilities.
The question today is how ‘equality’ can be addressed while taking into account
identities and interlocking patterns of discrimination. The volume “
Intersectionality: Putting Gender at the Centre” reviews recent discussions about
intersectionality departing from the insights from gender studies. The aim is to
provide students and policy makers with theoretical resources and practical policy
examples to help understand these debates. Learning from the experience with
gender equality policy and improving equality policy for all is a central concern.
The book includes examples demonstrating how new European Union legislation is
playing out in policy practice and invites readers to use the resources for research
