Situated within current feminist/poststructuralist theories regarding the "subject", this book focuses on the lives of three women teachers and their narrative strategies to author themselves as active agents within and against the essentializing discourses of teaching. The text argues that the complex and contradictory ways in which these women construct themselves as subjects, while simultaneously disrupting the notion of a unitary subject, point to new ways of thinking about subjectivity, resistance, power and agency. The implications of this, alleged, reconceptualization for feminist theorizing, curriculum theory and life history research are woven throughout the book.
