Retention and Resistance combines personal student narratives with a critical analysis of the current approach to retention in colleges and universities, and explores how retention can inform a revision of goals for first-year writing teachers. Retention is a vital issue for institutions, but as these students’ stories show, leaving college is often the result of complex and idiosyncratic individual situations that make institutional efforts difficult and ultimately ineffective. An adjustment of institutional and pedagogical objectives is needed to refocus on educating as many students as possible, including those who might leave before graduation. Much of the pedagogy, curricula, and methodologies of composition studies assume students are preparing for further academic study. Retention and Resistance argues for a new kairotic pedagogy that moves toward an emphasis on the present classroom experience and takes students’ varied experiences into account. Infusing the discourse of retention with three individual student voices, Powell explores the obligation of faculty to participate in designing an institution that educates all students, no matter where they are in their educational journey or how far that journey will go.

Feminists and Psychological Practice gives voice to the developing feminist critique of the position of women within academic and professional psychology. Drawing on the experiences and perspectives of students, teachers, researchers and practitioners, it explores how psychology functions to maintain power structures and practices which often exclude and oppress women. The authors address the issues that face feminists who attempt to counter these structures and practices, approaching the topic from a wide range of viewpoints reflecting different class, cultural and political positions. They question feminist as well as mainstream psychological practice. They confront the central dilemma over whether to work within or outside the system'. The implications of the discussion resonate far beyond the specific context of the profession of psychology. The book comes at a critical time, when the changing landscape of health and education puts psychology under increasing pressure to prove its efficacy and when women academics and practitioners face the prospect of working within patriarchal management increasingly governed by market forces. Feminists and Psychological Practice will prove invaluable to women in educational, clinical and academic psychology worldwide; it provides important material for courses in the psychology of women, the history and sociology of psychology, women's studies and gender studies.

Both a scholarly and personal critique of current feminist Moroccan discourses, this book is a call for a larger-than-Islam framework that accommodates the Berber dimension. Sadiqi argues that current feminist discourse, both secular and Islamic ones, are not only divergent but limit the rich heritage, knowledge, and art of Berber women.

Not until the eighteenth century was the image of the tender, full-time mother invented. This image retains its power today. Inventing Maternity demonstrates that, despite its association with an increasingly standardized set of values, motherhood remained contested terrain. Drawing on feminist, cultural, and postcolonial theory, Inventing Maternity surveys a wide range of sources--medical texts, political tracts, religious doctrine, poems, novels, slave narratives, conduct books, and cookbooks. The first half of the volume, covering the mid-seventeenth to the late eighteenth centuries, considers central debates about fetal development, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbearing. The second half, covering the late eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries, charts a historical shift to the regulation of reproduction as maternity is increasingly associated with infanticide, population control, poverty, and colonial, national, and racial instability. In her introduction, Greenfield provides a historical overview of early modern interpretations of maternity. She concludes with a consideration of their impact on current debates about reproductive rights and technologies, child custody, and the cycles of poverty.

Appraising key issues in the contested fields of postmodernism and feminism, this text focuses on applications in relation to practice, research and education in social work. The contributors come from a range of countries (UK, Australia, South Africa and Canada) and many have professional experience as social workers. Although postmodernist theory has been related to and explored in sociology and social policy, this text applies the theories to social work, and relates them to late-20th-century debates.
