The End(s) of Feminist Pedagogy

Feminist Pedagogy

Given the emergence of gender, queer, and trans studies beginning in the 1990s; given the professed commitment to diversity increasingly touted by universities; and, given the upsurge in practicums that purportedly teach through the practice rather than the consumption of knowledge, the question arises: Has feminist pedagogy been incorporated into, or co-opted by, the university? Have the ends of feminist pedagogy been achieved, or has it met its end?

The End(s) of Feminist Pedagogy - Academy for the Transformation of Teaching

Pamela L. Caughie is Professor of English and Women’s Studies and Gender Studies at Loyola University Chicago. A former president of the Modernist Studies Association, Professor Caughie is a modernist scholar and a feminist and gender theorist whose research and teaching focus on the study of literature and culture of the early twentieth century. She is also former director of the Women’s Studies Gender Studies Program at Loyola, where she founded the master’s program and hosted pedagogy workshops for faculty. For ten years she was director of the graduate programs in English, where she founded and directed a writing group for graduate students, and designed and taught a pedagogy course at the graduate level (Pedagogy: Theory and Practice).

Professor Caughie is author of two books, Virginia Woolf and Postmodernism (1991) and Passing and Pedagogy: The Dynamics of Responsibility (1999), and she co-editor of Man into Woman: A Comparative Scholarly Edition (2020), the life narrative of Lili Elbe, one of the first person to undergo gender confirmation surgery in 1930.
