Originally published in 1987. This book addresses a reappraisal of the processes of gender development and its social and educational consequences. It provides examples of key research topics and methods used for the exploration of gender and education and suggests direction for further inquiry. Unique in its depth and range of coverage, it is still helpful reading for students of education and practising teachers and administrators. A major theme of the book is the relationship between class, racism, sexuality and education. Divided into five parts, the first offers new critical analysis of theories of gender difference, while the following sections focus on four lines of inquiry into education: exploring the past (through autobiography and life history); evaluating the implicit messages contained in texts; investigating gender dynamics within schools; and researching teachers' expectations and their attempts to change practice.
What is Christian mission in a world post-everything? This volume is a masterful rethinking of the problems and prospect of the Christian vocation to mission in light of the whole checkered legacy - religious, philosophical, colonial, and economic - of modernity.Kirk draws on his considerable experience of worldwide mission and his expertise in modern Western thought to throw light on all the most burning questions, such as: What kinds of mission initiatives are appropriate today? Is it legitimate to invite adherents of different religions to follow Jesus? What role have Christians played in advocating violence, and also in being agents of peace and reconciliation?
The contributors to this collection offer an essential introduction to the ways in which feminist linguistics and critical discourse analysis have contributed to our understanding of gender and sex. By examining how these perspectives have been applied to these concepts, the contributors provide both a review of the literature, as well as an opportunity to follow the most recent debates in this area. Gender and Discourse brings together European, American and Australian traditions of research. Through an analysis of a range of `real' data, the contributors demonstrate the relevance of these theoretical and methodological insights for gender research in particular and social practice in general.
