    Chemistry for whom? Gender awareness in teaching and learning chemistry2017In: Cultural Studies of Science Education, ISSN 1871-1502, E-ISSN 1871-1510, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 425-433Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Marie Stahl and Anita Hussenius have defined what discourses dominate national tests in chemistry for Grade 9 in Sweden by using feminist, critical didactic perspectives. This response seeks to expand the results in Stahl and Hussenius's article Chemistry inside an epistemological community box!-Discursive exclusions and inclusions in the Swedish national tests in chemistry, by using different facets of gender awareness. The first facet-Gender awareness in relations to the test designers' own conceptions- highlighted how the gender order where women are subordinated men becomes visible in the national tests as a consequence of the test designers internalized conceptions. The second facet-Gender awareness in relation to chemistry-discussed the hierarchy between discourses within chemistry. The third facet-Gender awareness in relation to students-problematized chemistry in relation to the students' identity formation. In summary, I suggest that the different discourses can open up new ways to interpret chemistry and perhaps dismantle the hegemonic chemistry discourse.

    "It's Funny that We Don't See the Similarities when that's what We're Aiming for"-Visualizing and Challenging Teachers' Stereotypes of Gender and Science2012In: Research in science education, ISSN 0157-244X, E-ISSN 1573-1898, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 281-302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study illuminates teachers' conceptions of gender and science and possibilities to challenge these conceptions. Since 2005, a group of teachers (K-6) in Sweden have met approximately once a month in two-hour seminars to discuss and develop their instruction in science and technology based on a gender perspective. The present data consist mainly of audio-recordings of the teacher seminars and video-recordings of science activities with students. Analysis of the empirical data has been carried out in several stages and was inspired by thematic analysis, the theoretical framework of which is based on Hirdman's and Beauvoir's theories of gender. The results show that the teachers' ideas about gender/equity and science exist on several levels, within which various conceptions are represented. On the one hand, "reasoning around similarity", where teachers consider that both girls and boys should have the same prerequisites for working with science. In contrast, stereotypical conceptions of girls and boys occur when the teachers evaluate their activities with students, and condescending attitudes toward girls are also observed. The girls' ways of working with science are not as highly valued as the boys', and this outlook on children can ultimately have consequences for girls' attitudes towards the subject. When teachers are allowed to read their own statements about the girls, they get "a glimpse of themselves", and their condescending ideas about girls are made visible. In this way, the teachers can begin their active work towards change, which may lead to new outlooks on and attitudes towards students.

    Biologi under lupp.: Hierarkier, strategier och skevheter2018In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 39, no 4, p. 53-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines conceptions about the biology discipline and its practices, which are explicitly and implicitly presented in biology environments at Swedish universities. The empirical material has been obtained through “shadowing” and interviewing biologists and is analyzed with inspiration from Gee’s discourse analysis. The overall biology discourse consists of a number of sub-discourses, which sometimes express tensions between each other. One of these is the discourse of superior research with competitive, high performance, heavily equipped environments – a discourse which is in opposition to teaching activities. Another sub-discourse concerns the successful strategic biologist, and this discourse is in tension with the discourse of the enthusiastic, devoted, nature-loving biologist. The meritocratic discourse characterized by competence, knowledge and talent supposedly without the influence of gender, ethnicity, or class, contrasts, in its turn, with the discourse of the gendered practice that is visible in the material. These different sub-discourses are more or less inclusive for different individuals, something which can be observed in the gendered practices.

    What is science in preschool and what do teachers have to know to empower the children?2014In: Cultural Studies of Science Education, ISSN 1871-1502, E-ISSN 1871-1510, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 275-296Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we problematize the purpose of teaching science in preschool and the competences preschool teachers need in order to conduct science activities in the classroom. The empirical data were collected through an action research project with five preschool and primary school teachers (K-6). In the first section of this paper we use one situation, a floating–sinking experiment, as an illustration of how two different epistemological perspectives generate different foci on which kind of science teaching competences can be fruitful in preschool settings. In the first perspective, the central goal of science teaching is the development of the children’s conceptual understanding. With this perspective, we found that the science activities with children were unsuccessful, because their thoughts about concepts did not develop as expected, the situation even enhanced a‘‘misconception’’ concerning density. Moreover, the teacher was unsuccessful in supportingthe children’s conceptual learning. The second perspective uses a feminist approach that scrutinizes science, where we investigate if the floating–sinking activity contributes to a feeling of participation in a scientific context for the children and if so how the teacher promotes this inclusion. This second perspective showed that the children’s scientific proficiency benefited from the situation; they had a positive experience with density which was reinforced by the teacher. The children discovered that they had power over their own learning by using an experimental approach. On the basis of these findings, we conclude that there are competences other than subject matter knowledge that are also important when preschool teachers engage children in scientific activities. Through process-oriented work with the teacher group, we identified four concrete skills: paying attention to and using children’s previous experiences; capturing unexpected things that happen at the moment they occur; asking questions that challenge the children and that stimulate further investigation; creating a situated presence, that is, ‘‘remaining’’ in the situation and listening to the children and their explanations. We discuss possible ways to move preschool teachers away from their feelings of inadequacy and poor self-confidence in teaching science by reinforcing this kind of pedagogical content knowledge.

    Chafing borderlands: obstacles for science teaching and learning in preschool teacher education2019In: Cultural Studies of Science Education, ISSN 1871-1502, E-ISSN 1871-1510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines preservice preschool teachers’ university science education experience.The empirical data are from a research and intervention project conducted on teacher education programs at two Swedish universities. We analyzed one of the assignments completed by 111 students within a science course as well as their conversations about the assignment at a number of seminars. We combined culture contrast and thematic analysis to examine the data. The results showed a tension between the preschool culture and the university science culture. We described this tension between the boundary lines of the two cultures as a chafing borderland. These cultures do not merge, and the defined boundaries cause chafing with each other. We discuss ways of diminishing this chafing of borderlands, potential border crossings such as caring and children as boundary objects and equalizing power imbalances.

    Teori och praktik i synergi – produktarbete som självständigt arbete2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report presents an attempt to find other models than a "traditional paper" for the degree projects in teacher education. The degree projects described in the text are named “practice-oriented theses”. Prospective teachers were given the opportunity to execute, for example a development work which can result in some type of product (a teaching material, a teacher's guide or the like) as an independent project without having to renounce a scientific approach.The first part of the report is devoted to describing what characterizes a degree project, why it exists as a part of teacher education and what knowledge is available about the degree projects in earlier research and in evaluations. Subsequently, considerations and analysis in-struments are presented in relation to a case study based on the examination and analysis of eight randomly selected practice-oriented theses, written by four prospective preschool teach-ers and four prospective primary school teachers.First, a classification of the goals partly with an academic orientation and partly with a ca-reer orientation was done. According to the objectives in the System of Qualifications, the preschool program has a total of 26 goals and the Fk-3 teacher program has 27 goals. Seven-teen goals are identical for the two teacher categories. Only four goals are explicit about knowledge of scientific approach and research work. Furthermore, an analysis was carried out on the basis of another classification used in an earlier study of degree projects and a rough analysis based on the overall objectives of the Higher Education Act. In addition, four talks were conducted with teachers, who in different functions had worked with the practice-oriented theses.According to the analyses the differences between prospective preschool teachers and pro-spective primary school teachers are small regarding the achievement of the objectives of the System of Qualifications. Even the goals of an academic focus are met in the analysed prac-tice-oriented theses with one exception, namely attention and knowledge of science theory. Depending on the focus of the independent project, the goal of informing and collaborating with parents and custodians has also been met in the smallest extent. It was moreover found that the eight works in the investigation fulfilled the objectives of the Higher Education Act better compared with a similar survey from 2005. The discussions with the four teachers gave together a comprehensive picture of different views, both positive and negative, although none of the four were completely negative to practice-oriented theses.A chapter discussing didactics and science of the practice-oriented theses, as well as the students' products and texts, the students' approaches to different practice-oriented theses and the process of developing them concludes the report. Further, the supervisory situation and the designation of these works are also discussed. The report ends with the authors' conclu-sions and emphasizes that the System of Qualifications is so distinctively focused on what the students should master for their occupation, and that the analyses showed that usually two thirds or more of the goals were met in some way. This means that students who have com-pleted practice-oriented theses have hardly been disadvantaged for their occupational profes-sion compared to those who performed "traditional degree projects” that are more character-ized by academic requirements. Thus, it is established that practice-oriented theses have a potential in teacher education, but the knowledge provided by the current study has to be managed and refined.

    Abstract [sv]

    Universitetslärare i biologi, fysik och kemi lägger ingen större vikt vid att det finns lärarstudenter bland eleverna och deras uppfattning om ämnesdidaktik är diffus. Ofta sätter instrumenttunga laboratorier osynliga ramar för vad som är legitimt att fokusera. Studenter med annat fokus riskerar att stötas ut. Kulturen på institutionerna gör att ämneslärarstudenter matas med budskap om att undervisning är något underordnat – vilket sannolikt påverkar deras syn på utbildningsval, självbild och framtida yrkesroll som specialister på just undervisning. Vi har studerat lärarutbildares syn på sina ämnen och hur denna manifesteras i utbildningen.

    Chafing borderlands: Obstacles for Science Teaching and Learning in Teacher Education2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A major Western concern is that young people avoid science and technology programs. At various times, and in different countries, governments, funding agencies and businesses have made large investments in recruitment campaigns with the objective to increase students’ interest and attract new groups of students to these disciplines. In particular, girls and women have been the target group for many of these campaigns. The assumption is that if young people understood how exciting and interesting science is, they would choose these subjects. In other words, the problem is that young people "don’t understand what is best for their own good".  In addition, research has shown that primary and pre-school student teachers often feel alienated by science education (Appleton & Kindt 2002) and that it may be difficult for these students to reconcile the role of teacher of young children with the role of science teacher in their identity formation (Danielsson & Warwick 2012).

     

    However, feminist science educators suggest that students’ lack of interest is caused by character and image of the disciplines (Brickhouse 2001; Scantlebury 2012). Feminist philosophers’ of science have challenged the view of natural sciences as objective, and argue that knowledge production is human activities that are socially and culturally situated (Haraway 1988; Harding 1986). A noted problem with science is its elitist image. Science is portrayed as difficult and demanding, and as requiring a special talent from those who study or engage with the discipline. A feminist pedagogical stance is to visualize and discuss cultural, social, and historical dimensions of science. This has also proved advantageous for the acquiring of science content knowledge (Sible et al 2006). Therefore, we argue, that one important aspect of science teacher education is to problematize science (education), e.g. by including feminist critiques of science (Capobianco 2007; Mayberry 1998).

    In this paper we explore the impact of a feminist teaching intervention within teacher education, focusing on the research question: What occurs when students are situated in the encounter between feminist critique of natural sciences and teacher education? What kind of obstacles can be identified and how will these effect pre-service teachers’ pedagogy of science?

     

    The intervention, data collection and analysis

    In an ongoing research and intervention project we are studying how an increased awareness of gender issues in science and in science teaching among student teachers influences their identities as teachers, and their teaching of science. We have followed a cohort of approximately 120 pre-service teachers (early years to lower secondary) from two universities in Sweden, through their first year of science courses. As an integral part of these science courses our intervention has introduced critical perspectives on gender and science as related to the culture of science and a feminist critique of the sciences. The project as a whole is framed theoretically by Hirdman's (1990) and Harding's (1986) theories of gender order in society, where gender is constituted on different levels: the structural, the symbolic and the individual (Harding 1986; Hirdman 1990; Rubin 1975). Hirdman (1990) describes this pattern from two perspectives: first, the separation of the two sexes and second, the superior status of the male standard. The formation of gender consolidates differences between the sexes and the female gender is always subordinate the male one, independent of status, class, time, and space.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article we explore the places pre- and primary school (K-6) student teachers associate with their science learning experiences and how they view the relationship between these places and science. In doing so, we use ‘place’ as an analytical entry point to deepen the understanding of pre- and primary school student teachers’ relationship to science. Inspired by theories from human geography we firstly explore how the university science classroom can be conceptualised as a meeting place, where trajectories of people as well as artefacts come together, using this conceptualisation as the stepping stone for arguing the importance of the place-related narrations of science the students bring to this classroom. We thereafter analyse how a sense of place, including affective dimensions, is reflected in Swedish student teachers’ science learning narratives (collected in the form of an essay assignment where the student teachers’ reflected upon their in and out of school science learning experiences). The empirical material consists of 120 student essays. The most prominent feature of the empirical material as a whole is the abundance of affective stories about the student teachers’ experiences in natural environments, often expressing a strong sense of belonging to, and identification with, a particular place. However, the student narratives also give voice to an ambivalent valuing of the affective experiences of natural environments. Sometimes such affective experiences are strongly delineated from what the students consider actual science knowledge, on other occasions, students, in a somewhat contradictious way, stress natural environments as the authentic place for doing science, in contrast to the perceived in-authenticity of teaching science in the classroom. When student teachers explicitly discuss the classroom as a place, this was almost without exception with strong negative emotions, experiences of outsideness and alienation.

    Pre-service teachers' views of the child: Reproducing or challenging gender stereotypes in science in preschool2018In: Research in science education, ISSN 0157-244X, E-ISSN 1573-1898, Vol. 48, no 4, p. 691-715Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We report how 47 pre-service teachers during their preschool placement in Sweden identify events related to gender and emerging science. We analysed their reflections on the situations with Gee’s Discourse analysis. Two dominant discourse models were identified: the Discourse Construare, where pre-service teachers assumed that children have potential interests in a variety of subjects, and the Discourse Essentia, where children were regarded to have a stable core identity. In the latter discourse, the pre-service teachers’ task would be to encourage the children to be who they are. The analysis found a connection between pre-service teachers’ views of the child and whether gender stereotypes were reproduced or counteracted. The Discourse Essentia is in conflict with the goal in the Swedish national curriculum that all children should learn science.  We discuss how the different discourses affect whether children are stimulated or inhibited in their emerging science activities and interests. Based on the results from an analysis of answers reflecting the Discourse Construare, we have designed a model illustrating a process for gender-aware teaching.

    Abstract [en]

    his article explores gendered processes in preschool science through Barad’s agential realism [2007. Meeting the Universe Halfway. Quantum Physics of the Entanglement of Matter and Meaning. London: Duke Universal Press], and as such, the study makes both theoretical and empirical contributions in how it combines perspectives from emergent science [Siraj-Blatchford, J. 2001. Emergent Science and Technology in the Early Years.” Paper presented at the XXIII World Congress of OMEP. Santiago, Chile, August 3], new materialism, and gender theory. Empirically, the study makes use of data constructed during a field study in a Swedish preschool with five-year-old children. The focus of the field study was the children’s play and explorations together with the preschool environment, during activities not specifically guided by teachers. The analysis highlights how the children’s identities and scientific explorations are made possible as well as constrained together with the preschool’s material-discursive environment. As such, the study demonstrates how teachers cannot rely on any environment, activity, choice or subject content to be (gender) neutral.

    Abstract [sv]

    Lärarstudenter har följts under ett år av naturvetenskapliga kurser, där vi problematiserat den naturvetenskapliga kulturen och integrerat genusmoment. En utgångspunkt har varit att ökad genusmedvetenhet, tillsammans med kunskaper om ämneskulturen, kan ge nya sätt att förhålla sig till och arbeta med naturvetenskap. Resultaten visar att när studenter med negativa erfarenheter av naturvetenskaplig undervisning förstår hur ämneskulturen påverkat dem, så ger det dem en annan relation till ämnena. Även platsen har betydelse för att förstå känslor av alienation. Det visar sig också att genus har betydelse för vilka områden barn får tillgång till. Lärares (o)medvetna föreställningar kan innebära att de tolkar och styr barnens aktiviteter, vilket får till följd att barnen kan uppmuntras eller hämmas. Lärarens genusmedvetenhet får då ämnesdidaktiska konsekvenser. Från det empiriska materialet har vi konstruerat en modell som illustrerar lärarens utveckling av en genusmedveten undervisning.

    Interstitial spaces - a model for challenge and change.2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces the concept of interstitial spaces to examine the boundaries of science, science education, pedagogy, caring, and gender to discuss the different cultures teacher students meet during their education. Interstitial spaces exist between and within boundaries. These spaces are possible sites within a defined context (a discipline, a practice, a culture) that may be occupied by an actor/agent working as a “carrier” of different cultural practices, knowledge and theories. A “carrier” can use the interstitial space to influence and challenge a “new” context and thus loosen up boundaries, but can also by experiencing new cultures and developing new knowledge integrate these new views into future practices. Thus, interstitial spaces establish a context for a carrier to act in ways to transform and change the cultures of disciplines. On an individual level, instead of feelings of alienation, of not fitting into a culture, the model offers a carrier the position as someone who has the potential and possibility to invoke a change, and this can be empowering.

    Abstract [sv]

    I detta temanummer om naturvetenskap och utbildning, går naturvetenskapen som en röd tråd genom samtliga artiklar och finns även med som en aspekt i frispel och recensioner. Genom åren har det tidigare förekommit ett antal artiklar på samma tema, samt några temanummer och artiklar med fokus på det närliggande teknikområdet. Naturvetenskap har också en gång tidigare varit föremål för ett temanummer, nämligen i dåvarande Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, nummer 4 från 1984, som handlade om kvinnor och naturvetenskap. Då beskrevs vetenskapsområdet som ”kanske det forskningsfält, som längst lyckats hålla sig utom skotthåll för den feministiska vetenskapskritiken”, vilket förklarades med mansdominansen samt de naturvetenskapliga ämnenas förmåga att upprätthålla en bild som varande objektiva och värderingsfria. Inte mycket har hänt sedan dess; naturvetenskapen har lyckats bevara ett skimmer av objektivitet ochden är fortfarande en manlig bastion vad gäller högre positioner inom akademin, även inom biologiämnet som haft en majoritet av kvinnliga studenter åtminstone sedan 1980-talet. Exempel på hur detta kan ta sig uttryck idag ges i några av artiklarna i föreliggande nummer.

    Vi hoppas att detta temanummer, med ett feministiskt insider-perspektiv på naturvetenskap, kan bidra med nya perspektiv på ämneskulturerna. Med förhoppning om givande och lärorik läsning,

    Transgressing disciplinary borders: position-status-power as feminists within science/scientists within gender studies2016In: ECER 2016: Leading Education: The Distinct Contributions of Educational Research and Researchers, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Coming from natural science disciplines into a research environment where transgressive encounters between cultural, social and biological understandings of sex and gender are characteristic, we examine how one can use transgressive identities to offer a feminist critique of traditional organizational and knowledge boundaries. We examine the different experiences that have caressed, chafed, pained, influenced and thus contributed to our shaping of our identities. Our focus is the challenges and advantages of engaging with, and participating in, the cultures of different disciplines.

     

    Feminism promotes an awareness of, and a need to challenge, social power structures. Feminists have provided critical stances of scientific knowledge, the production of that knowledge and where the knowledge resides. While science is an obvious ‘target’ of a feminist critique, as researchers who operate in interstitial settings between feminism and science, science and education, our positions provide us the opportunity to examine the role of status and power in elevating one subject over another and to discuss how feminism, science and science education may intersect to produce new knowledge, practices and structures.

     

    In this presentation we use the concepts of interstitial spaces and transgressive identities to examine the boundaries of gender and feminist studies, science, and education and discuss our research practices and positions. In doing so, our point of departure is our own experiences. Interstitial spaces exist between and within boundaries. These spaces are possible sites within a defined context (a discipline, a practice, a culture) that may be occupied by an actor/agent working as a “carrier” of different cultural practices, knowledge and theories. A “carrier” can use the interstitial space to influence and challenge a “new” context and thus loosen up boundaries, but can also by experiencing new cultures and developing new knowledge return to the “old” culture to integrate these new practices. Thus, interstitial spaces establish a context for transgressive identities to emerge so one can act in ways to transform and change the cultures of disciplines.

    Research in gender and education has evolved from a focus on issues of equity and access, to difference and intersectionality, and more recently subjectivity and identity (Dillabough, McLeod, & Mills, 2009).  While science education research has continued its focus on access, difference, and identity, gender research within the field has become fused, and possibly lost, within other social categories (Scantlebury, in press). McRobbie (2009) labeled the erosion of feminist research through the devaluing of its ideas and goals as disarticulation. She argued that rather than producing new goals and themes across social categories, disarticulation acted as a ‘dispersal strategy’, to the detriment of all social groups.  Feminism was no longer viewed as a place where different subordinate groups could learn from each other and identify common political causes feminist ideals (McRobbie, 2009). 

    Despite calls from feminist researchers for a more nuanced examination of gender in science education, such as, how various social categories intersect and interact with one’s gender (that is, intersectionality), using queer theory to challenge hetereonormative assumptions in science and schooling, and expanding data analysis to include a broader interpretation of gender than the dichotomy of feminine and masculine (Hussenius et al, 2013). Currently, the percentage of papers with ‘gender or feminist or equity’ as a research category in peer-reviewed science education articles is less than five percent (Hussenius et al, 2013).  In areas of science education research that produced the most published articles such as changing students’ conceptions or examining teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge, researchers have rarely addressed gender issues (Andersson 2010; 2013).  But science and science education are social organizations, and as such are gendered (Acker, 1990). Gender influences who studies, participates, and engages in science. An ongoing trend is that females are overrepresented in the biological/life sciences and males are disproportionally represented in the physical sciences (Hill et. al., 2010). Previously, researchers have suggested that achievement and attitudinal differences accounted for the gendered pattern of females’ and males’ science participation. However, meta-analytic studies have shown minimal differences in achievement between females and males (Hyde & Linn, 2006). Researchers suggest that larger societal structures, rather than differences between groups, explain why academically capable and qualified women chose not to enroll in physical science and/or engineering majors or more than three times the number of boys indicated their interest in a computing, engineering or mathematics career compared to girls (Sikora & Pokropek, 2012). However, gender studies at society’s structural level rarely examine outcomes in terms of gender and other social categories and the engagement of students in science remains highly gendered.

    In the early 1990’s Haraway challenged feminists to engage with reality and an examination of language because science and technology and the discourse that built these areas produced a ‘matrix of domination’. Science education research rarely uses critical theories when producing knowledge and recommending changes to teacher preparation, curriculum that would interest and engage all students, or the pedagogical practices that would deconstruct a ‘matrix of domination’.  Barad (2003) argued that researchers had granted language ‘too much power” and called for feminists to re-engage with matter/material. 

    Material feminism considers language and reality, and incorporates both into discussions of identity (Hekman, 2010). Material feminism offers a theoretical framework for science educators because it moves theorizing and analysis from the post modern and post humanities approaches to social critique that focused solely on language/discourse to incorporating matter. This theoretical paper introduces, and then discusses, how material feminism may offer a framework for science education researchers to re-examine how engaging with socio-cultural context as well as the physical contexts of learning, teaching and practicing science could make gender matter.
