Gender Mainstreaming, Intersectionality and Inclusive Perspectives in Higher Education
Linköping University, Faculty of Educational Sciences. Linköping University, Department of Behavioural Sciences and Learning, Education, Teaching and Learning.
2014 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this presentation I will discuss different ways of working with gender equality and anti-discrimination in higher education. I am arguing for a new concept of gender inclusion. This concept combines strategies of gender mainstreaming with a number of specific pedagogical and self- reflexive elements in university teaching. It also embeds working with gender into an intersectional context, where gender is understood as one feature interacting with other dimensions that risk cementing inequality. I will take up some examples on how we at Linköping University work with preparing conditions to increase equal opportunities in higher education and present results from an interview study with teacher educators. The study describes university teachers’ perceptions of strategies and dilemmas when working with gender inclusion in teachers’ education.
