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

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.

Abstract [en]

“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.
