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


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.

Abstract [en]

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

creative potential

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.
