Feminist Pedagogies: The Textuality of the Racialized Body in the Feminist Classroom
This paper addresses two central questions: What are the challenges of practising feminist pedagogies in an increasingly market-driven and demanding educational climate? And how does a racialized instructor negotiate these challenges? These questions are examined from the perspective of a Black female professor who teaches Introduction to Women’s Studies and Feminist Theory to first- and second-year students, respectively.
Cet essai aborde deux questions centrales: quels sont les dé fis de pratiquer des pédagogies féministes au sein d’un climat éducatif de plus en plus exigeant et axé sur une économie de march? Et comment un instructeur « racialisé » négocie-t-il ces défis? Nous examinons ces questions de la perspective d'un professeur femme de race noire qui enseigne des cours d'introduction aux études sur les femmes et à la théorie féministe à des étudiants de première et de deuxième année respectivement.
