If you would like to further explore the idea of travelling concepts, check out the companion series of four short booklets: Travelling Concepts in Feminist Pedagogy: European Perspectives (York, UK: Raw Nerve, 2006).

Each booklet is based around a cluster of specific ideas, and is written by a different sub-group from Travelling Concepts. Using varied collaborative methods they highlight the tensions, pleasures and responsibilities of developing an effective and radical feminist pedagogy that attempts to be truly European.

The Publisher

Raw Nerve Books is an independent small press that works collaboratively with authors, and has a particular interest in developing non-standard content and format within feminist academia.
It was only when thinking about what the group might usefully publish together that we were confronted with the sheer uniformity of most publishing arenas, with academic publishers usually not being prepared to takes risks on collaborative, creative and innovative work, particularly with respect to design.
In contrast, we worked closely with Raw Nerve’s editor Ann Kaloski, and designer Hilary Doran, and in the spirit of Travelling Concepts collaborated not only on the content of the booklets, as would be expected, but also their form. We had many lively debates about the cover graphics, and being encouraged to think about the internal design was especially productive: each book’s textual format is intended to reflect their particular representation of speaking and learning across politically-charged difference, with all the gaps and textual breaks that this implies.
