Gender Under Scrutiny : New Inquiries in Education, Paperback / softback Book

Gender Under Scrutiny : New Inquiries in Education Paperback / softback

Edited by Gaby Weiner, Madeleine (University of Cambridge, UK) Arnot

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Education and Gender series


Originally published in 1987. This book addresses a reappraisal of the processes of gender development and its social and educational consequences.

It provides examples of key research topics and methods used for the exploration of gender and education and suggests direction for further inquiry.

Unique in its depth and range of coverage, it is still helpful reading for students of education and practising teachers and administrators. A major theme of the book is the relationship between class, racism, sexuality and education.

Divided into five parts, the first offers new critical analysis of theories of gender difference, while the following sections focus on four lines of inquiry into education: exploring the past (through autobiography and life history); evaluating the implicit messages contained in texts; investigating gender dynamics within schools; and researching teachers' expectations and their attempts to change practice.
