Teaching Gender. Feminist Pedagogy and Responsibility in Times of Political Crisis
Edited by Beatriz Revelles-Benavente and Ana M. González Ramos, Teaching Gender: Feminist Pedagogy and Responsibility in Times of Political Crisis (Routledge, 2017) addresses the neoliberalization of the university, what this means in real terms, and strategic pedagogical responses to teaching within this context across disciplines and region.
Inspired by bell hooks’ “transgressive school” and Donna Haraway’s “responsibility”, this collection promotes a politics of care within the classroom through new forms of organizational practices. It engages with the challenges and possibilities of teaching students about women and gender by examining the multiple pedagogical, theoretical, and political dimensions of feminist learning.
The book revisits how we can reconfigure a feminist politics of responsibility that is able to respond to or engage with contemporary crises. It also conceptualizes crisis and explains how it is transforming contemporary societies and affecting individual vulnerabilities and institutional structures. Finally, it offers practical cases from different European locations, in which crisis and responsibility have served to reformulate contemporary feminist pedagogies, altering curriculums, reframing institutions, and affecting the process of teaching and learning.
