Lifelong learning is a key feature of society today, and is apparently embraced by a wide range of educators and trainers, as well as by governments and employers. In this wide-ranging book, Sue Jackson shows that universities have been slow to embrace a lifelong learning agenda, and argues that the lifelong learning experiences of women - and especially of working-class students - are seldom welcomed in the academy.

In its unique considerations of the experiences of women students and academics, this book expounds an innovative and critical analysis of women in higher education. It will give a clear indication of alternative strategies for learners, teachers and policy makers.

This book will be of key interest to anyone working in the fields of lifelong learning or continuing education who is interested in making learning accessible and meaningful for disadvantaged groups. It will also appeal to students of education, women's studies, gender studies and sociology; and to those interested in issues of gender, social class, feminist theory and feminist research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"As a feminist who has come late to a full-time academic role, the title of this book, `differently academic?' caught my attention immediately. ... I conclude that the book offers a powerful analysis of the contribution of feminist pedagogy in the context of women's studies. It may well inspire a sequel that joins up the experiences described with the experiences of students and teachers who seek to introduce the principles of feminist pedagogy within other programmes of study." (Margaret L. Page, Gender Education, Vol. 19 (3), 2007)
