Description - Working the Ruins by Elizabeth St.Pierre
From some of the leading feminist scholars in education comes a collection of writings discussing how they use feminist poststructural theory in their classrooms and research. Drawing on real-life situations in their work, they show how using this theory has transformed their work. Topics covered include: theory in everyday life; ethnography; writing the body; emotions in the classroom; qualitative research; and "gossip as a counter-discourse". The range of topics, processes, and styles presented provides the reader with a variety of examples, illustrating the diversity and power of the effects of poststructural theory as well as showing the possibilities of work still to be done.
