Feminisms and Educational Research

( 1 )

Overview

Feminist theory has come a long way from its nascent beginnings—no longer can it be classified as “liberal,” “socialist,” or “radical.” It has shaped and evolved to take on multiple meanings and forms, each distinct in its own perspective and theory. In Feminisms and Educational Research, the authors explore the various forms of feminisms, tracing their history and their relation to gendered knowledge and identity. Unlike other books on feminism, the authors do not attempt to push that a particular theory is more...

Overview

Feminist theory has come a long way from its nascent beginnings—no longer can it be classified as “liberal,” “socialist,” or “radical.” It has shaped and evolved to take on multiple meanings and forms, each distinct in its own perspective and theory. In Feminisms and Educational Research, the authors explore the various forms of feminisms, tracing their history and their relation to gendered knowledge and identity. Unlike other books on feminism, the authors do not attempt to push that a particular theory is more correct than another, but rather they give a complete overview of each of the forms of feminism.
The authors then couple the philosophical and theoretical ideas of western feminisms with the aims and conduct of educational research, exploring how they interact and influence each other. Focusing on more recent feminists, both in education and related disciplines, the book highlights illustrative examples from research to form a basis of understanding how the different feminisms have changed education.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Laird
This brief, clear text offers a selective introduction to recent feminist philosophy and theory outside educational studies. In accessible language Kohli and Burbules explain also some methodological innovations wrought by various research specialties within the postmodernist tradition that today dominates critical Anglophone education concerning class, race, sexuality, and gender.
Cris Mayo
This book outlines the collaborations, theories, and practices around gender (and beyond) that shape educational research. As we increasingly turn to interdisciplinary educational research, a book like this can help sort out the implications of these sometimes divergent, sometimes productive collisions among feminisms and other critical and gender theories. Such tools can only re-energize feminist research and theory in education.
Kathleen Weiler
A clearly written and perceptive discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of feminist educational inquiry. This book will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars undertaking feminist research in education in any area.
Lynda Stone
Smart, sophisticated and definitively comprehensive, Kohli and Burbules’s text moves feminist theory from an often-outsider place in educational research right into the mainstream. Research knowledge is no longer just king but now queen. Particularly significant is the centrality of education feminist theorists and researchers in this critical and current treatment. The book reminds previous generations of the need for feminist theorizing and for this generation of its continuing relevance. This is a must-read today as it will be for several decades to come.

    highly recommended--this book is excellent!

    a highly readable exploration of various types of feminisms (hence the plural) and their underlying philosophical and theoretical underpinnings; and an explication of how these impact educational research. Wendy Kohli's work is an important contribution to the field.
