Diss.--Münster. Bibliography: p. i-viii.
In this dissertation, I read Judith Thompsons The Crackwalker, I am Yours, Habitat, and Lion in the Streets with an eye towards how Thompson produces socially contingent spaces as sites of marginalized identity. My focus is on Thompsons work as a playwright rather than on the texts in performance. My interest is in the ways Thompson mediates a characterization of class-based marginality through the experience of space as a social product. In interrogating Thompsons use of space, I refer to the theories of philosopher Henri Lefebvre, specifically to the notion of space as a social product and his conception of the double illusion.

How do I, a teacher-researcher, contribute to knowledge of teacher learning and practice in teacher education as I explore my values through self-study? Teacher-researcherMcBride, Judith B. 2005 (has links)
Stories told of and by teacher-researchers hold the potential to inform members of both academic and school communities with concerns about teaching and learning. The author's self-study and an embedded case study constitute this thesis. The latter is an instrumental, single-case (Stake, 1998), seeking to offer insight into teacher learning. It is framed by theories of cognition (Sternberg, 1998), adult learning (Mezirow, 1991), narrative (Gudmundsdottir, 1995), teacher-research (Connelly & Clandinin, 1999), and self-study (Hamilton, 1998). This thesis presents my experience as a teacher-researcher engaging in self-study, asking: "What do I care about in education?" (Whitehead, 1993). In conducting my inquiry, I have become interested in knowing the following: (1) What have I learned? (2) How do I represent my learning? (3) How shall I take my learning forward? Learning is understood to mean "the process of using a prior interpretation to construe a new or revised interpretation of the meaning of one's experience in order to guide future action" (Mezirow, 1998, p. 6), and is seen in terms of improvement to professional practice. In examining the self-study report of my colleague, Nancy, the question "How is learning evidenced in the narrative report of the teacher-researcher engaging in self-study?" is addressed. A claim is made that, as teachers engage with questions about what they care about in education, they are learning. Data for my self-study include narrative accounts, artifacts, and images. Data for the embedded case include a co-constructed narrative account, photographs, a tape-recorded conversation, and interview and concept map collected between January 2000 and July 2003. Narrative data in the embedded case study were subjected to inductive and deductive analyses. Confirmatory evidence was sought in the conversation and interview, which were analyzed similarly, and the concept map, which was interrogated deductively. It may be seen that the stories of teacher-researchers inquiring into practice offer evidence of transformative learning (Mezirow, 1991), which may initiate and constitute living educational theory (Whitehead, 1993), and provide insights to those with interests in teacher education.

Once holding an esteemed literary reputation as author of The Gleaner (1798), an eclectic collection of prose and poetry serialized and sold by advance subscription, Judith Sargent Murray (1751-1820) was virtually forgotten for nearly two centuries. The 1986 discovery of manuscripts believed to have been lost prompted critics to evaluate anew Sargent Murray’s literary accomplishments. Previously unpublished poems and letters mark the prolific author as an important figure in early America’s self-conscious attempt to establish a national literature. This dissertation makes available Volume One of Sargent Murray’s poetry manuscript journals: two hundred and twenty previously unpublished poems and two that were published in The Massachusetts Magazine. The poems in Volume One serve as a representative sampling of the poet’s oeuvre, and the critical introduction and annotations of the first volume provide evidence of her stature as an important figure in early American political activism. She stands out as an early feminist, as a keen observer of social and historical issues (most notably the contest with Great Britain), and as a staunch proponent of the Universalist Church in America.
Hur tolkningar av begreppet jämställdhet kan ge upphov till olika former av jämställdhetsintegrering : Intervjuer med tre kommunanställdaHakkarainen, Mirja 2016 (has links)
Den här uppsatsen syftar till att visa hur olika uppfattningar om jämställdhet hos några kommunalt anställda öppnar upp möjligheter till tre olika former av jämställdhetsintegrering som Judith Squires har identifierat. Genom intervjuer besvaras frågan om vilka idéer som finns representerade hos de kommunanställda. Intervjuerna har analyserats med hjälp av innehållsanalys där koder har hämtats från Squires teori om hur argument för jämställdhet också öppnar upp för en viss typ av jämställdhetsintegrering. Syftet är även att undersöka om det uttrycks argument för jämställdhet som öppnar upp för en så kallad transformativ jämställdhetsintegrering, vilket är den enda formen som, enligt Squires, möjliggör en djupare förändring av samhället. Något som den svenska jämställdhetspolitiken faktiskt har som mål. Resultatet visar att det förvisso finns personer som talar om jämställdhet utifrån ett sätt som skulle kunna generera en transformerande jämställdhetsintegrering, men även att den allmänt vedertagna bilden i kommunen snarare inte verkar tala för detta.
