Uusi kirja HLBTI-järjestöjen yhteistyöstä koulujen kanssa

Kansalaisjärjestöt tekevät yhteistyötä koulujen kanssa eri tavoin eri puolilla maailmaa. HLBTI-järjestöt pyrkivät vaikuttamaan koulujen opetukseen ja monissa maissa tähän tarjoutuu mahdollisuuksia siten, että järjestöjen kouluttajat vierailevat kouluissa kertomassa seksuaalisuuden ja sukupuolen moninaisuudesta. Joissain maissa tähän ei ole mahdollisuutta vaan aktivistit pyrkivät vaikuttamaan muilla keinoin. Uudessa kirjassa “Queer Social Movements and Outreach Work in Schools: A Global Perspective” käsitellään aihepiiriä eri maiden ja kulttuurien näkökulmasta. Kirjan on toimittanut WeAll:n vanhempi tutkija Jukka Lehtonen yhdessä professori Dennis Francisin ja apulaisprofessori Jon Kjaranin kanssa.
This book brings together leading scholars researching the field of gender, sexuality, schooling, queer activism, and social movements within different cultural contexts. With contributions from more than fifteen countries, the chapters bring fresh insights for students and scholars of gender and sexuality studies, education, and social movements in the Global North and South. The book draws together both theoretical and empirical contributions offering rich and multidisciplinary essays from scholars and activists in the field focusing on outreach work of QSM (Queer Social Movements) in schools, queer activism in educational settings, and the role of QSMs in supporting and informing queer youth.

“This book analyzes the difficulties faced by educators in developing education practice that promotes the value of sexual diversity, unsettles heteronormativity, and effectively challenges homophobic and transphobic bullying. Its chapters relate experiences in very different national contexts, exploring the possibilities for a transformative alliance between queer activism and schools that might open pathways toward a possible utopia: that of inclusion and celebration of sexual diversity within and beyond classrooms.”
María Victoria Carrera-Fernández, Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Vigo, Spain, and co-author of Educación Sexual: De la Teoría a la Práctica(2009) “This impressive collection of intersectional essays draws on country-specific examples, including countries where being LGBTIQ is still illegal, to examine the spaces of hope and possibility that can occur when schools and queer social movements connect. This is a timely and important collection that foregrounds global and intersectional perspectives that will be of immense value to researchers, educators, and activists who are committed to advocacy, resistance, and social justice.”
Kristopher Wells, Canada Research Chair for the Public Understanding of Sexual and Gender Minority Youth at MacEwan University, Canada, and co-editor of Journal of LGBT Youth

This book lives up to the promise of the title! The editors have brought together a highly diverse group of researchers working in global contexts which are too often overlooked in the field of queer theory and education. It is great to see these pieces assembled in one volume; this indicates the strength and breadth of scholarship in this area. People interested in how queer ideas travel in education and social movements will benefit from reading this collection.”
Mary Lou Rasmussen, Professor, Australian National University, associate-editor of Sex Education, and co-editor of the The Palgrave Handbook of Sexuality Education (2017)
