Translated title of the contribution: Undoing gender and queer pedagogy - equally differently problematic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


It is only recently that a queer perspective on educational and upbringing relationships has emerged also increasingly taken into account in German-speaking educational science (see Kenklies and Waldmann, 2017; Hartmann, Messerschmidt and Thon, 2017a). This discussion, in particular, takes place in a fragile one The tension between committed criticism of heteronormativity (cf. Hartmann, Messerschmidt and Thon 2017b) and systematic shading of normative relationships into a plurality of shades of gray (see Kenklies, 2017). The mediation of normative positioning and that of queer theory at the same time radical criticism of any normativity posed a challenge for educational practice.
