about this item
This edited collection challenges the urban-centric nature of much feminist work on gender and education, and explores the radical reconfiguration of rural areas that has occurred in recent decades. From a range of diverse national contexts, authors explore the intersections between masculinity, femininity, and rurality in education, attending to how educational exclusions can be magnified by differences in class, race and sexuality. Similar critical insights are brought to bear as authors examine what it means to be a male or female teacher in rural environments. This book was originally published as a special issue ofGender and Education.
