Teaching Empires
How to deal with gender, women, gender roles, feminism and gender equality in
teaching practices? The ATHENA thematic network brings together specialists in
women’s and gender studies, feminist research, women’s rights, gender equality
and diversity. In the book series ‘Teaching with Gender’ the partners in this network
have collected articles on a wide range of teaching practices in the field of gender.
The books in this series address challenges and possibilities of teaching about
women and gender in a wide range of educational contexts. The authors discuss
pedagogical, theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching on
women and gender. The books contain teaching material, reflections on feminist
pedagogies, practical discussions about the development of gender-sensitive
curricula in specific fields. All books address the crucial aspects of education
in Europe today: increasing international mobility, growing importance of inter
disciplinarity and the many practices of life-long learning and training that take
place outside the traditional programmes of higher education. These books will be
indispensable tools for educators who take seriously the challenge of teaching with
gender. (For titles see inside cover)
What is the relationship between gender and empire? How will a focus on gender
generate new knowledge about histories of empire? The aim of Teaching Empires
is to critically examine questions about imperial effort, as remembered, displayed,
denied, mythologized or obscured in various European contexts. The book draws
upon the research and teaching of scholars from across Europe and is suited to a
range of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching settings. The authors show how
to use art, film, novels, diaries, personal memories, textiles, household materials,
museum artefacts and photographs in a range of imaginative and analytical articles,
exercises and teaching assignments. There is an extensive bibliography and
insightful discussion about how empire is defined in various countries. Teaching
Empires is an important resource for teachers and students of gender studies who
are interested in identifying new teaching approaches, fresh sources and generating
new knowledge about complex territories of gender and empire.
The books are printed and also published online. Contact athena@uu.nl or go to www.athena3.org or
