Pedagogies of Possibility for Negotiating Sexuality Education with Young People
Emerald Publishing Limited, Feb 28, 2022 - Education - 144 pages
Pedagogies of Possibility for Negotiating Sexuality Education with Young People offers a sustained and critical consideration of the possibilities and politics of engaging with young people in the redevelopment and delivery of contemporary approaches to Sexuality Education.
Drawing on research undertaken as part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage grant, this book explores the affordances, tensions and challenges of participatory methodologies and pedagogies that authorize young people's perspectives and visions for Sexuality Education. Foregrounded are the contradictions between what young people want to learn more about and the risky forms of praxis that are necessary to engage with various understandings of Sexuality Education and the important role of adult allies in supporting young people to navigate these contradictions. Each chapter chronicles and captures both adult allies and young people’s experiences of the project by drawing on data produced through visual-arts based methods and various ethnographic techniques, such as participant observation, focus group interviews, and guided conversations.
