Subject to fiction : women teachers' life history narratives and the cultural politics of resistance
Drawing on the life histories of three teachers, this book explores their narrative strategies to author themselves as active agents within and against the essentializing discourses of teaching. It also covers the implications of this reconceptualization for feminist theorizing, curriculum theory, and life history research.
