Format: Journal Article & Book Chapter

Teaching feminist economics is a relatively new didactical project posing questions of content and methodology for instructors. The article proposes three possible topics with regard to the changing nature of the emergent research field: introducing feminist economics as a mode of questioning, showing its historicity and spectrum, and asking the question of a unifying paradigm. Complementarily, the article identifies teaching methodologies and aspects to consider for teaching according to feminist economics’ theoretical insights. This includes the role of experiences, the need for instructors to change perspectives, and the idea of caring and holding as starting points for a feminist pedagogy.
