Educators are increasingly dealing with questions of difference in terms of their practice, their students and the diverse school communities in which they are situated. However, there are surprisingly few opportunities to reflect on and analyse the effects of these differences on educational practice. This unit engages students in a range of theoretical debates about social justice, difference, and the 'politics of identity'. In particular, it foregrounds theoretical engagements with questions linked to gender, sexuality, social class, race, ethnicity,disability and the intersections between them.
