Educational Studies in the Light of the Feminine analyzes a professional trajectory in which engagement in research is a driving force for development, psychosocial integration and socio-professional commitment.

This book promotes the emergence of an ethical and resilient subjectivity and introduces the hypothesis of an operative principle of the feminine as added value to collective intelligence, through a diachronic and diatopic vision of girls and women.

By analyzing concrete examples, this book explores the evolution of higher education contexts, frameworks and governance, along with their consequences in terms of the transformation and innovation of educational practice. The challenge is to question the subsidiarity, discernment and development of autonomy in changing professional contexts and to share an interest in the emerging psychological dynamics.

This book invites us to reconsider intervention methods, temporalities and frames of reference, as well as their subjective and epistemic economies, as potentialities of education, training and empowerment for a diverse population.
