Gender and Rurality (Hardcover): Lia Bryant, Barbara Pini Gender and Rurality (Hardcover)
Lia Bryant, Barbara Pini
R2,128 Discovery Miles 21 280 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The study of gender in rural spaces is still in its infancy. Thus far, there has been little exploration of the constitution of the varied and differing ways that gender is constituted in rural settings. This book will place the question of gender, rurality and difference at its center.

The authors examine theoretical constructions of gender and explore the relationship between these and rural spaces. While there have been extensive debates in the feminist literature about gender and the intersection of multiple social categories, rural feminist social scientists have yet to theorize what gender means in a rural context and how gender blurs and intersects with other social categories such as sexuality, ethnicity, class and (dis)ability. This book will use empirical examples from a range of research projects undertaken by the authors as well as illustrations from work in the Australasia region, Europe, and the United States to explore gender and rurality and their relation to sexuality, ethnicity, class and (dis)ability.

Julianne Moss, Barbara Pini
R609 Discovery Miles 6 090 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Have you noticed there is a burgeoning take up of visual research in education? Are you considering using visual research as part of your next research project or revitalising your research methods course? For researchers who are new to the field of VRMs in education there is little critical literature on the subject. This book addresses the gap in the literature and brings together some of the leading educational researchers engaging and reflecting on the visual from Australia, the UK and Canada. Encapsulated in a single volume, this book sets out theoretically grounded discussions of the possibilities and challenges of the approach for educational researchers around four key themes: images of schooling, performing pedagogy, power and representation and ethical issues in educational research.

Disability and Masculinities - Corporeality, Pedagogy and the Critique of Otherness (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017): Cassandra... Disability and Masculinities - Corporeality, Pedagogy and the Critique of Otherness (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2017)
Cassandra Loeser, Vicki Crowley, Barbara Pini
R2,200 Discovery Miles 22 000 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In recent years, attending to diversity in the cultivation of embodied identity has been given additional impetus as a result of intersectionality theory. Despite this, a key gap remains in terms of knowledge about masculinity and disability. This book addresses this lacuna through ten empirical chapters organised through the inter-related themes of corporeality, pedagogy and the critique of otherness. Each of the chapters positions the subject of masculinity and disability as a site of cultural pedagogy by affirming different ways of knowing of masculinity beyond dominant ideologies that normalise a particular masculine body and relegate disabled masculinities to the position of abnormal `Other'. Part One focuses on pedagogy. Through the materialities of `medicalized colonialism', imprimaturs of `relational genealogies', `compounding differences' and an analytical exposition of some of the neo-colonial conditions of the Global South within spatially-considered places of the Global North, Chapter 1 examines the denial of human rights to the Indigenous Anishinaabe community of Shoal Lake 40 in Canada. Chapter 1 theorises masculine corporeality in terms that take seriously First Nations', national and transnational body politics seriously. Chapter 2 examines the ways that movement and affect serve as a form of pedagogy for boys with autism spectrum in schools. Part Two's focus on corporeality includes an examination of the nexus of disability and diagnosis in the context of transgender men's experiences of mental health, and a discussion of the ways that intersex individuals who identify as men and have experienced `genital normalising surgery' actively negotiate pluralised masculinities. The focus on media in Part Three encompasses a study of the mis-interpellation of the disabled male subject in Australian male literature, research on the discursive strategies utilised in media representations of disabled veterans in Turkey, and an analysis of the political implications of depictions of masculinity, disability and sexualities in a variety television program. Part Four's theme of self-stylisation takes up the questions of men's reconstructions of masculinity in light of Lyme Disease, the potential pleasures of heterosexuality for young men with a hearing disability in the realm of Australian-Rules Football, and the diverse ways that disabled men negotiate patriarchal masculinity in intimate relationships.

This book will be required reading for all those working in the fields of sociology, employment relations and education

Education and the Global Rural - Feminist Perspectives (Paperback): Barbara Pini, Relebohile Moletsane Education and the Global Rural - Feminist Perspectives (Paperback)
Barbara Pini, Relebohile Moletsane
R1,116 Discovery Miles 11 160 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This edited collection challenges the urban-centric nature of much feminist work on gender and education. The context for the book is the radical reconfiguration of rural areas that has occurred in recent decades as a result of globalisation. From a range of diverse national contexts, including Kenya and South Africa, Australia and Canada, and the United States and Pakistan, authors explore the intersections between masculinity, femininity, and rurality in education. In recognition of the heterogeneity of categories such as `rural girl' and `rural boy' they attend to how educational exclusions can be magnified by differences in relation to social locations such as class, race, or sexuality. Similar critical insights are brought to bear as authors examine what it means to be a male or female teacher in rural environments. Contributors draw on data ranging from contemporary feature films to historical materials, along with detailed ethnographic work and participatory approaches, to produce a compelling narrative of the need to understand education as experienced by those who are not part of the urban majority. This book was originally published as a special issue of Gender and Education.

Barbara Pini, Paula McDonald
R3,098 Discovery Miles 30 980 Out of stock

This edited volume brings together empirical studies of gender and employment in the local government sector - around the world - and the ways in which gender plays a role in the recent restructuring of local government in industrialized democracies.

Andrew Gorman-Murray, Barbara Pini, Lia Bryant
R1,540 Discovery Miles 15 400 Out of stock

This international edited collection contributes to knowledge about the geographies of sexualities experienced and imagined in rural spaces. The book draws attention to the heterogeneity of rural contexts and the diversity of meanings about sexualities within and across these spaces. The collection examines four key themes. First, 'Intimacies and Institutions' focuses on how intimate relationships are governed by societal, discursive and institutional structures, and regulated by social, political and legal frames of citizenship and belonging. Second, 'Communities' explores how sexual identities are socially-constructed and relationally-performed in rural communities. Third, 'Mobilities' examines movement/migration at different scales. Fourth, 'Production and Consumption' investigates the commodification of rural sexualities. It provides important new insights about ruralities and sexualities, filling a gap in theoretical and empirical understandings about how sexualities in diverse rural spaces are given meaning.

Rurality and Education (Hardcover): Barbara Pini, Robyn Mayes, Laura Rodriguez Castro Rurality and Education (Hardcover)
Barbara Pini, Robyn Mayes, Laura Rodriguez Castro
R2,673 Discovery Miles 26 730 Out of stock

This book broadens the scope of the subject of rural education and enlivens the ways in which the subject may be studied. Through textual and visual analysis of a range of sources - including young adult novels, the farming simulation game `Hay Day' and reality television programs - the contributors investigate how the lives of young people in rural spaces are mediated by a range of social locations including class, ethnicity and sexuality. Additionally, through rich and detailed ethnographic work, the book explores the complicated and multifaceted meanings of rural places and examines how these meanings shape experiences of schooling for teachers and students. In doing so, the book embeds the study of rural education in explorations of patrilineal inheritance on family farms, international migration, globalisation and economic restructuring. It aims to start a conversation about the robust and complex ways in which the confluence between `rural' and `education' may be imagined, experienced and researched. This book was originally published as a special issue of Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education.

Reshaping Gender and Class in Rural Spaces (Hardcover, New Ed): Belinda Leach Reshaping Gender and Class in Rural Spaces (Hardcover, New Ed)
Belinda Leach; Edited by Barbara Pini; Series edited by Pauline Gardiner Barber, Marianne H. Marchand, Jane L. Parpart
R2,576 Discovery Miles 25 760 Out of stock

Leach and Pini bring together empirical and theoretical studies that consider the intersections of class, gender and rurality. Each chapter engages with current debates on these concepts to explore them in the context of contemporary social and economic transformations in which global processes that reconstitute gender and class interconnect with and take shape in a particular form of locality - the rural. The book is innovative in that it: - responds to calls for more critical work on the rural 'other' - contributes to scholarship on gender and rurality, but does so through the lens of class. This book places the question of gender, rurality and difference at its centre through its focus on class - addresses the urban bias of much class scholarship as well as the lack of gender analysis in much rural and class academic work - focuses on the ways that class mediates the construction and practices of rural men/masculinities and rural women/femininities - challenges prevalent (and divergent) assumptions with chapters utilising contemporary theorisations of class With the empirical strongly grounded in theory, this book will appeal to scholars working in the fields of gender, rurality, identity, and class studies.

Feminisms and Ruralities (Paperback): Barbara Pini, Berit Brandth, Jo Little Feminisms and Ruralities (Paperback)
Barbara Pini, Berit Brandth, Jo Little
R681 Discovery Miles 6 810 Out of stock

Feminist concern with difference has rarely extended to rurality even if it is now widely recognized that experiences of inequality depend on intersections of several identities in each individual life. This lack of concern may reflect the urban background of the majority of feminist academics or at least their urban positionality once in the academy. It may equivalently be that feminists have been influenced by stereotypes of rural women as traditional and reactionary, and thus seen them as unlikely exponents of gender equality, and an unfruitful focus for scholarly energies. Perhaps the problem is a broader one, that is, reflective of the much documented, but still apparent unwillingness of many feminists to recognize and address difference in any of its manifestations. Regardless, even with the recent interest in intersectionality which has necessarily renewed and reenergized debates in feminism about diversity and inclusion, the question of how women are differently positioned because of their non-metropolitan location has remained largely overlooked.

Women and Representation in Local Government opens up an opportunity to critique and move beyond suppositions and labels in relation to women in local government. Presenting a wealth of new empirical material, this book brings together international experts to examine and compare the presence of women at this level and features case studies on the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Finland, Uganda, China, Australia and New Zealand.

Masculinities and Management in Agricultural Organizations Worldwide (Hardcover): Barbara Pini Masculinities and Management in Agricultural Organizations Worldwide (Hardcover)
Barbara Pini
R2,440 Discovery Miles 24 400 Out of stock

Using contemporary gender theory to examine gender and rurality beyond that of simply women/femininities, this illuminating book accurately locates the subject of masculinities within the rural/agricultural context. While there has been a wealth of literature on men and masculinities published in recent years, the climate of ideas has been typically experienced through an urban lens. This book therefore investigates new conceptual territory. Embedded in the literature on gender and rurality as well as the scholarship on gender and organizations/management, the book draws on an in-depth ethnographic study of gender relations in Australian agricultural politics. It will speak to academic audiences in rural social sciences, gender studies and management/organization studies.

Feminist researchers have produced a large body of critical scholarship on methodologies as they pertain to the study of women. However, questions about issues such as power, positionality and ethics in research related to men and masculinities have remained largely unaddressed. This is despite the fact that research on men and masculinities has grown exponentially in recent years, as is evidenced by the increasing number of scholarly books and journals on the subject. In this book researchers reflect on their experiences of studying men and masculinities from the perspective of topics ranging from internet dating and violence to social inclusion and rock climbing. They also canvass how we can address difference and diversity amongst men and between masculinities in our methodological approaches. Through the lens of masculinity studies the authors contribute to broader methodological debates about subjects such as field access, insider-outsider positioning and qualitative versus quantitative approaches.
