Introductory Bibliography for Curriculum Transformation

Compiled by Sara Coulter

A beginning point . . .

The Introductory Bibliography provides a list of references for beginning curriculum transformation on women, especially for those organizing projects and activities for faculty and teachers. It does not attempt to be comprehensive but rather to simplify the process of selection by offering an "introduction" that will lead you to other sources. It is available in a text version (see Order Form) or free online below.

Introductory Bibliography for Curriculum Transformation

"Where do I begin?"

When individual faculty, teachers, and project directors begin the task of curriculum revision, they confront a large number of resources and a variety of complex issues. Although both the level of faculty preparation and local institutional circumstances can vary widely, the following bibiliography is intended to suggest where one might begin.
Since women have not been a part of the traditional curriculum, assimilating information about women and their diversity is a new learning experience. The titles recommended below offer an

abbreviated introduction to the study of women. The many good textbooks now available for introductory Women's Studies courses could also serve this purpose.

Rethinking the Disciplines

The answer to why women have not been a part of the traditional curriculum resides in part in the definitions and paradigms of knowledge employed by the disciplines. These definitions and paradigms are often invisible and unconscious. Thus, much attention has been devoted to analyzing how disciplines define themselves and how they would have to change to make both men and women a part of their research and scholarship. Many of these titles are anthologies containing separate essays on individual disciplines and topics.

The Advice and Experience of Colleagues

Thousands of faculty throughout the United States have been involved in curriculum transformation projects. Much of their work has been published in collections of reports, essays, and revised syllabi, some of which have become available as books or journal articles. Many, however, remain less visible, in-house publications originally available only from project directors, centers, or institutions. Both kinds of resources are listed below.

Professional Associations as Sources of Curriculum Transformation Publications

Many national professional organizations have supported the publication and distribution of curriculum transformation materials as part of the resources for teaching that they want to provide for their faculty. In addition to being excellent resources, these materials have the advantage for many faculty of being associated with a professional organization with which they identify.

Journals and Periodicals

There are a great many journals and periodicals devoted to feminist scholarship and issues of gender. An excellent resource for reviewing the contents of over 100 of these journals is Feminist Periodicals, A Current Lisitng of Contents, published quarterly by the Office of the Women's Studies Librarian at the University of Wisconsin. Since many libraries in educational institutions cannot subscribe to all of the journals of interest to their faculty and teachers, Feminist Periodicals allows individuals to browse current tables of contents and request copies of articles of particular interest. Complete publication information for the following journals is available in Feminist Periodicals as well as in other library resources.

Journals and periodicals especially useful in curriculum transformation:

    Feminist Teacher. Published since 1984, this journal publishes articles, news, and other resources for feminist educators, from preschool to graduate school. Wheaton College, Norton, MA.

Interdisciplinary in perspective, NWSA Journal particularly encourages "articles by and about women of color, research analyzing class issues, scholarship examining non-Western cultures and research focusing on feminist pedagogy."
