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
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
“Teaching with the Third Wave – New Feminists’ Explorations of Teaching and
Contexts” is a collection of the work of young feminist scholars united
in their interest in a Third Wave perspective of teaching which continues feminists’
struggles for equality and female empowerment. The volume presents reflections
on the transfer of feminist knowledge inside and outside university structures
current conditions by respecting the work of earlier generations of feminists.
Being part of the European feminist network ATHENA, the contributors map a
of emerging questions in regards to teaching methodologies, teaching
experiences and challenges for teaching under increasingly globalized and neoliberal
as well as neo-conservative and right-wing tendencies from
the perspective of different Western locations, theoretical backgrounds, political
and personal situatednesses. Thus, the volume is of interest for all (feminist)
readers who are involved in furthering feminist teaching in present conditions.
