Teaching Gender When There is No Gender to Teach: Exploring the Opportunities and Challenges for Teaching Gender at Liberal Arts Colleges

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines the opportunities and challenges for integrating women’s studies and gender issues into college classrooms where there is no specific focus on gender both at the college wide level and within individual courses. The paper revisits bell hook’s Teaching to Trangress which among other things seeks to focus on making the classroom “the most radical space of possibility in the academy”. Using interviews from feminist scholars in a newly created liberal arts college, the paper will explore both the challenges and opportunities for feminist scholars in teaching introductory social science courses when there is no gender and women’s studies center at the College.
