Teaching Women’s Lives: Feminist Pedagogy and the Sociological Imagination

  • Arlene Dallalfar


It is 8 a.m. on a cold January morning. I sit in my freezing car waiting for it to warm up. Excited and nervous, I anticipate the dynamics of my first class of the semester, a weekly three-hour junior/senior-level seminar course titled “Women’s Lives: Global Perspectives.” Having previously visited the assigned classroom, I know that it will take some time before the students arrive to transform it from a traditional lecture style setting (instructor desk in front of the blackboard and rows of tables and chairs facing the desk) into a formation that allows all participants in the seminar to see and engage in discussion with any other classmate or with me.1
