This volume seeks to redress the balance of masculinity by examining the grammars of gender as these are acted out in the dialogues of Higher Education. Gender roles, whether of dominance or of marginality, are seen here as being negotiated simultaneously within texts and in the social performances of the classroom. Working through a number of short case studies, this book will be at once a contribution to the scholarship of teaching and to the debate on gender in culture.
