Resistance and Representation: Rethinking Childhood Education provides a critical, cross-cultural narrative of early childhood education at the end of the twentieth century. Contributors from the United States, Canada, and the Pacific Rim explore issues of identity and practice in early childhood education, employing feminist, critical, and postmodern perspectives in understanding the lives of young children, their parents, and their teachers. Through their multilayered narratives, the scholars included in this book share their understandings of how theoretical shifts and understandings have impacted their thinking about early childhood research and practice, and their thoughts about issues of research representation and resistance. The contributors' writings point to the importance of feminist, critical, and postmodern theory as frames for early childhood research and reflect the broad array of perspectives on curricular, social, and pedagogical issues within the early childhood field.
