Teaching with gender

Author(s): Olsson, Annika, Andrea Petô and Berteke Waaldijk (series eds.)

How can educators address issues of gender, women, gender roles, feminism and gender equality? This new book series focuses on learning and teaching in the interdisciplinary field of gender studies.

Presentation from publisher

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 the pedagogical, theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching on women and gender. The books in this series contain teaching material, reflections on feminist pedagogies and practical discussions about the development of gender - sensitive curricula in specific fields.

All books address the crucial aspects of education in Europe today: increasing international mobility, the 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 seriously the challenge of teaching with gender.
