About this book series

This series provides a comprehensive space for an increasingly diverse, complex and changing area of interdisciplinary social science research: gender and education. Gender studies continues to respond to controversies, backlashes, shutdowns, as well as to new openings, imaginations and reconfigurations, including to traditional disciplines, and what counts as knowledge, experience and voice. Series authors differently plot emerging and enduring definitions and debates, monitoring and intervening in critical complexities of gender and education across global contexts. 

This series adopts feminist approaches and orientations and attends to key theoretical and methodological debates, ensuring a continued conversation and relevance within the well-established, interdisciplinary field of gender and education. It combines renewed and revitalised feminist research methods and concepts with emergent and salient public policy issues, asking what futures feminists, and future feminisms, can be brought into being through education. 

These issues include education across the lifecourse, from early years, through (post)compulsory education, to lifelong learning. Authors have focused on intersectional inequalities including race, class, sexuality, age and disability; policy and practice across educational landscapes; global activism and the ‘public university’; belonging in higher education; outdoor learning and community education; initial teacher education; queer pupils, students and teachers; femininity, masculinity and gender stereotypes - and much more. 

The series recognises the necessity of probing beyond the boundaries of specific territorial-legislative domains to develop a more international, intersectional focus. In doing so, it hopes to provide insightful reflection on continued critical challenges to and through feminism within (and beyond) the academy.
