Feminism and Schooling

Co-taught by Dr. Barbara Korth and Dr. Lara Lackey

Summer Session I

May 9 – June 15, 2006 (6 weeks) Beginning May 10

M, W, F 4-6:45

Classes will meet in the School of Education, Room TBA.

In this doctoral-level seminar we will explore the application of
feminist theory and writing to schooling and education. We welcome
students from all departments within the School of Education as well
as students across campus. Topics may include teaching as a
feminized profession; the gendered nature of school curricula;
explorations in feminist pedagogy, schools as training grounds
for ‘public’ rather than ‘private’ or domestic concerns; assumptions
about ‘male’ and ‘female’ culture and learning; sexuality and
heteronormativity; and other issues of gender bias related to
learning, teaching, conceptions of education and the organization of
schools. Key assignments will involve leading a class session
(individually or in pairs) on a course topic and a final project
that applies course and independent reading to individual interests
and research. The final project may take multiple forms and will be
based on student proposals. Due to the condensed nature of Summer
Session courses, due dates for final projects will be extended until

A key text for the course will be The Jossey-Bass Reader on Gender
and Education, foreword by Susan M. Bailey, Jossey-Bass, San
Francisco, CA, 2002. Participants will need to acquire additional
texts according to their particular areas of interest.
