We seek submissions for The Feminist Playbook: Classroom Activities for Intersectional Pedagogy­­—an edited book collection of  interdisciplinary, feminist lesson plans intended for any higher-eduction class where learning happens outside of the gender box. We are currently in discussion with Routledge and CRC press about publishing this professional resource for faculty and instructors teaching in colleges and universities. 

To this end, we are seeking proposals that describe an active learning lesson that can be completed in one class session. This lesson needs to ahdere to at least one tenent of feminist pedagogy:

  • Representing Identity

  • Challenging the systemic inequalities

  • Disrupting power dynamics

  • Empowering students

  • Constructing a community

  • Privileging voice

  • Fostering respect for diverse experiences


Each entry (900-1200 words) consists of two parts: “Notes from the Margin” and “Centering the Classroom.” 

“Notes from the Margin” offers a rationale for the in-class activity, explaining how each exercise aligns with the goals of feminist pedagogy. This part should not include details of the activity; rather, it should focus on the theoretical reasoning behind the activity. Include at least one theorist and define any necessary terminology. This part should be approximately two to four paragraphs; references can be listed at the end of the submission. 

The second section-”Centering the Classroom”-- includes step-by-step instructions on how to conduct this activity in one classroom session. This section should begin with a few sentences stating the overall purpose of the activity and/or the activity’s ultimate task. After this brief introduction, please complete the following information and then describe the classroom activity as clearly as possible.

Be sure to include any instructions that a fellow professor might need to replicate the activity, including sample discussion questions, rubrics, images, etc. Note that you are welcome to share how professors could expand on the activity beyond a single classroom session or other ways to tweak the activity. 

We invite contributors from all disciplines. We encourage you to submit multiple activities.
