Abstract or Summary
  • This dissertation expands the theory of subjectivity by examining how discourses behave. Of particular intent here is the subjectivity of preservice teachers. Students from Oregon State University's Masters of Arts in Teaching program volunteered as participants. Audio-taped sessions of their small group talk about gender issues and education, dialogue journals, and brief autobiographical sketches form the data base for the study. Analysis of the data involved the identification of discourses present in the language of individual participant's talk. The result is an illustration of subjectivity as a battle site, disciplinary power of a discourse, the insidious nature of discourses, and care of the self The language of preservice teachers is analyzed so that we as teacher educators might challenge our own assumptions about teaching and learning to teach. The application of a poststructural feminist theoretical framework challenges traditional ways of gathering, reporting, and analyzing data. Therefore, the reader may recognize tensions arising between the required structure of the dissertation, the content, writing style, and the methodology used.
