Troubling Gender in Education

Overview

This book draws together leading and emerging international theorists in gender and education in order to trouble some of the ways in which gender is currently being theorised in the field. It has a strong cross-cultural focus, for example, considering issues of Muslim and African identities, and discussions about gender and education which draw upon experiences in the UK, the US, Australia, Canada, the Pacific and South Africa. It engages with issues in both boys' and girls' education, as well as considering issues of sexuality and national identity. Across these various terrains, it seeks to invigorate existing debates pertaining to gender and education by drawing upon theoretical work that is informed by diverse social science and education traditions. In addition to different strands within feminist and gender theory, these traditions include, but are not limited to, queer, postcolonial and new sociological theories, with a focus on the work of such theorists as Beck, Bauman, Giddens, Halberstam, Foucault and Arendt. A key purpose of this book is to explore new frameworks, questions, issues, and ways of seeing and thinking within the field of gender and education.In so doing, it celebrates as well as assesses the achievements of feminist work in education, which has been, and remains, an extraordinarily powerful and influential cumulative body of intellectual work. At the same time, we seek to showcase new directions in the field and provide an account of the some of the cutting-edge debates that serve to challenge the very nature of what gender theory in education is thought to be. In so doing, we speak to the ongoing expansion and diversification of gender theory and education. In our view, this re-examination, alongside a presentation of new research directions, will play an important role in the revitalization of gender theory in education. It will also seek to set the scene for explaining the emergence of new and contested theoretical territory, as well as provides students in the field with novel ideas for future research.
