Gender and the creation, structuring and interpretation of knowledge
Equal Opportunities International
Article publication date: 1 March 2000
Investigates the interpretation and the body of literature surrounding the British prehistory era defined as 500 000 BC to 43 AD. Looks at how and by whom the past has been constructed, who has the power of information and interpretation. Questions whether this interpretation is objective and the way the subject is covered in education together with the lack of women within the process. Argues a case for using the material to enhance pupils’ abilities to evaluate information and draw conclusions.
