About

CASWE offers a forum for exposing vital components of contemporary education that are frequently rendered invisible by existing pedagogy, curriculum, philosophy, policy, and school organization. Social justice and equity concerns have been constructed in particular ways with a subtle or even conspicuous avoidance of alternative interpretations. Issues of gender pervade social justice and equity in aspects of existing pedagogy, curriculum, philosophy, policy and school organization. Key areas of interest for CASWE include:

  • Equity and Inclusion in Education/Academia
  • Gender Identities and Gender Expression
  • Leadership
  • Feminism and Intersectionality
  • Critical and/or Gender Informed Methodologies
  • Canadian Contexts for Women in Education
  • Feminism in Education

CASWE is a constituent association of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE).
