When addressed in its full reactive potential, gender has a tendency to unfix the reassuring certainties of education and academia. Gender pedagogy unfolds as an account of teaching gender learning that is rooted in Derrida's concept of the 'trace', reflecting the unfixing properties of gender and even shaking up academic knowledge production.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is characterized by its author as 'a thinking exercise'. It certainly is! This is a radical and creative invitation to consider how academic feminism across the political generations resources and replenishes claims to intellectual authority. Using Derrida's notions of 'the trace,' Emily F. Henderson opens her imaginary out to the complex encounters, misfires, misses and entrancing disturbances of 'feminist pedagogy' in a globalized classroom studying gender and development. Sensitive to how power can confound 'intention,' the book provides some innovative ways of reading how 'gender' always eludes its subjects making the task of the teacher and student entangled in self-contradiction but therein she argues lies the allure of tracing how gender speaks and how we might speak about gender." - Professor Valerie Hey, Centre for Higher Education and Equity Studies, University of Sussex, UK

"This book is a valuable and original piece of work, which stands out for its interactive engagement with the reader and for its extraordinary capacity to disentangle complex threads of analysis in an accessible but still extremely nuanced way. A true gem by a remarkable young writer!" - Maria do Mar Pereira, Deputy Director of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender and Assistant Professor, University of Warwick, UK
