Publisher Comments:

Presented with the task of preparing students for life in a rapidly shrinking world, even scholars teaching in cross-disciplinary areas like women's studies may find themselves overwhelmed by the need to cross disciplinary and geographic borders-often in defiance of academic traditions and prejudices. And some faculty are leading the way to a curriculum that reflects the forces of globalization.

Encompassing Gender is an anthology of more than 40 essays by 60 scholars, many of them working in groups that cut across the humanities, the sciences, and the social sciences, all of them committed to an interdisciplinary approach to internationalizing the curriculum. These scholar-teachers promote the discovery of more diverse and global perspectives. Strategies for focus are key.

The volume includes essays, course syllabi, annotated bibliographies and videographies, as well as novel teaching strategies and suggestions for a variety of international materials. The contributors take a fully integrated approach to such transformational curricular work, recommending both theoretical perspectives and specific strategies for teaching.

Mary M. Lay served as the director of the Center for Advanced Feminist and is now professor of rhetoric at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Janice Monk is executive director of the Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) and adjunct professor of geography at the University of Arizona. Deborah S. Rosenfelt is professor of women’s studies and director of the Curriculum Transformation Project at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Synopsis:

Ground-breaking collection that crosses disciplines to bring an international and gendered perspective into our classrooms.
