Book Description

March 1 2012 1552664767 978-1552664766
The impact of feminist thinking on contemporary knowledge is examined in this intriguing study. Emerging from the 2009 lecture series “Feminist Knowledge Reconsidered: Feminism and the Academy,” this book covers current ideas about feminism in relation to education, society, and the future potential for feminist research and teaching in the university context. Connecting early stories of women who defied their exclusion from knowledge creation to contemporary challenges for feminism in universities, this collection assesses how feminist knowledge has influenced dominant thinking and transformed teaching and learning. It also focuses on the challenges for feminism as corporatization redefines the role of universities in a global world. The essays reflect on both historical and contemporary themes from a diversity of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, but they are united in their exploration of how feminism’s continuing contribution to knowledge remains significant, even fundamental, to the transformation of knowledge in both the academy and the world.
