Feminist Pedagogies; Gender and the "Arab Spring"

Have you read this book: The Reorder of Things: The University and Its Pedagogies of Minority Difference.  Roderick A Ferguson, U Minnesota Press (here)?


I came across this notice via twitter:

On Friday, April 5th, Roderick Ferguson, Professor of American Studies at the University of Minnesota, will speak for the [Columbia] Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality’s Feminist Pedagogy series.  He will be discussing his book The Reorder of Things (click here for the original notice)

First thought – Must get book

Second thought:  Feminist Pedgogy series? Must get one of those!
