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
and gender in a wide range of educational contexts. The authors discuss
theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching
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.
Visual literacy is crucial for understanding the role of visual culture as a key factor
in processes of globalization, technologization and multiculturalization, which
are all part of our historicity. Certainly, the study of the visual is not limited to
the study of images, but also of their effects, material practices they entail and
they offer. Therefore, it is of critical importance to work out new
approaches to study both epistemologies and ontologies of the visual.
Visual Culture in an Interdisciplinary Classroom
paradigms, theories and methodologies within the common field of feminist visual
culture. By doing so, it demonstrates the importance of the analysis of the visual
for feminist studies as well as the need to increase visual literacy in general. The
volume provides theoretical and methodological support and examples of possible
analyses for researchers and students interested in the field of feminist visual
culture or, more generally, women’s studies, gender studies, visual studies, art
and science studies. It presents feminist theories and methodologies,
which were influential for the field of visual culture and encourages readers to
think critically about the visual.
