Subject To Fiction: Women Teachers' Life History Narratives and the Cultural Politics of Resistance

Couverture
McGraw-Hill Education (UK), 1 avr. 1998 - 153 pages
Drawing on the life histories of three teachers, this book explores their narrative strategies to author themselves as active agents within and against the essentializing discourses of teaching. The complex and contradictory ways in which these women construct themselves as subjects, while simultaneously disrupting the notion of a unitary subject, provide new ways to think about subjectivity, resistance, power and agency.
