About this book

This book showcases and celebrates the work of Gender and Sexuality Education scholars in order to challenge current negative interpretations of the field, and work towards new shared visions. The editors and contributors call for, affirm and offer examples of pathways towards exciting and dynamic collaborative work in Gender and Sexuality in Education. In doing so, they also acknowledge the various complexities of this field, and detail the context-specific barriers faced by academics and activists. Drawing upon a range of global case studies, this book sets out information and advice from cross-sector experts to set an agenda of mutual supportiveness, and to smooth pathways for future collaboration.  Above all, this book is a call to action to uplift the field – and each other – in challenging environments. This ground-breaking book will be of interest and value to scholars of Gender and Sexuality Education research.

Reviews

“This collection is energising reading. It provides readers with plenty of reasons to be upbeat about the vibrancy and diversity of gender and sexuality education research and practice. The collection is novel in its format, incorporating more traditional research informed chapters alongside narratives from emerging and established researchers regarding how they carved out careers in the field. It is also packed with useful resources for qualitative and quantitative researchers. Going beyond the research community, the editors also draw on the expertise of workers and stakeholders who implement, commission and collaborate on research in this area. This “love letter” to and from the field is a timely intervention.” (Professor Mary Lou Rasmussen, The Australian National University, Australia)
