- ItemPlacing feminist education within the three paradigms of knowledge and action(Family Relations, 2002-07) Humble, Áine M.; Morgaine, Carol A.Use of the three paradigms of knowledge and action (instrumental‐technical, interpretive, and critical‐emancipatory) to achieve the goals of feminist family education is explored. Each paradigm is described, including its underlying assumptions and when it is useful to use. Feminist methods in selected Family Relations articles between 1988–1999 are examined for their illustration of the three paradigms. Various challenges in using the interpretive and critical‐emancipatory paradigms also are discussed.
- ItemFamily work and relationships: Lessons from families of men whose jobs require travel(Family Relations, 2005-07) Zvonkovic, Anisa M.; Solomon, Catherine R.; Humble, Áine M.; Manoogian, MargaretThis study explores how family members experience their lives when family breadwinners must be absent from home because of their jobs. Informed by general systems theory and contextual perspectives, we described wives’ family work that supports the breadwinner role and maintains the emotional connections among family members. From our findings about how families of commercial fishermen and long‐haul truckers manage their time and their paid and unpaid work, we applied their challenges and strategies to other families experiencing difficulties related to time and work involvement.
- ItemA Freirean approach to family life education: Conducting a graduate institute in Jamaica(Convergence,, 2006) Taber, Nancy; Humble, Áine M.; Norris, DeborahThis paper discusses an international, intensive 10-day graduate institute called A Freirean Approach to Family Life Education, conducted in Jamaica. Details on the coordination of the programme and administration of the course are given, and then a brief overview of Jamaican families is provided. Emancipatory family life education is described, drawing on both Paulo Freire's work and Freirean-influenced work. Final sections of the paper describe the planning and experience of the institute. Issues of cultural divergence and convergence are explored, focusing on family diversity and sexual orientation. Pedagogical recommendations for educators involved in cross-cultural Freirean adult education are provided, including the importance of international educators being prepared to take a stand to support social justice.
- ItemFeminism and mentoring of graduate students(Family Relations, 2006-01) Humble, Áine M.; Solomon, Catherine R.; Allen, Katherine R.; Blaisure, Karen R.; Johnson, Michael P.A small body of mentoring literature exists, but how mentoring relates to feminist supervision of graduate students has not been explicitly addressed. Because mentoring typically socializes individuals into a preexisting structure that feminist scholars may be challenging, critiquing, and attempting to change, important considerations arise for feminist mentoring. Three established feminist educators’ stories of mentoring are presented. Commonalities and concerns are identified, and implications for graduate pedagogy are presented.
- Item“The royal we”: Gender ideology, display, and assessment in wedding work(Journal of Family Issues, 2008) Humble, Áine M.; Zvonkovic, Anisa M.; Walker, Alexis J.Family rituals provide a rich context in which to study the relation between ideology and action. Guided by the gender perspective, this article analyzes the experiences of 21 newly married heterosexual couples who described how they planned their weddings. The interplay among gender ideology, gender display, and gender assessment differed across three types of couples: traditional (n = 6), transitional (n = 10), and egalitarian (n = 5). An examination of gender assessment in transitional couples illustrates how holding competing ideologies contributes to the reproduction of hegemonic gendered work patterns within wedding planning.
- ItemTechnique Triangulation for Validation in Directed Content Analysis(International Journal of Qualitative Methods, 2009) Humble, ÁineDivision of labor in wedding planning varies for first-time marriages, with three types of couples—traditional, transitional, and egalitarian—identified, but nothing is known about wedding planning for remarrying individuals. Using semistructured interviews, the author interviewed 14 couples in which at least one person had remarried and used directed content analysis to investigate the extent to which the aforementioned typology could be transferred to this different context. In this paper she describes how a triangulation of analytic techniques provided validation for couple classifications and also helped with moving beyond “blind spots” in data analysis. Analytic approaches were the constant comparative technique, rank order comparison, and visual representation of coding, using MAXQDA 2007’s tool called TextPortrait.
- ItemThe Second Time 'Round: Gendered Construction in Remarried Couples' Wedding Planning(Journal of Divorce & Remarriage, 2009-04-17) Humble, ÁineHumble, Zvonkovic, and Walker (2008) studied division of labor in first-time marriages, finding a range of gender construction. This study applied their conceptualization to remarried couples, for whom little is known about division of labor or wedding experiences. Fourteen couples in which at least 1 spouse had recently remarried were interviewed about their wedding planning. Data analysis consisted of direct content analysis, rank order comparison, and matrix analysis. Contrasting Humble et al.'s findings, traditional and egalitarian couples were more common than transitional couples. Although remarriages tended to involve smaller and less complicated weddings, the majority of the couples replicated gendered patterns from their first weddings in subsequent weddings.
