Professor Carolyn Jackson will present a seminar that highlights contemporary women's issues aligning with International Women's Day.
Carolyn's research explores aspects of gender and education. Questions she investigate include: how do learner and gender identities intersect? What motives 'laddish' behaviours? What are the advantages and disadvantages of single-sex and co-educational schools or classrooms? How do fears operate in education, and with what effects? Why is 'effortless achievement' so appealing, and is it gendered?
