Abstract

Gender research in mathematics education continues to be important work for gender equity in mathematics, as well as in STEM fields more broadly. Additionally, authors recently called for research on sexuality, identified a dearth of research in this area, and a need to theorize and operationalize such research (Dubbs, 2016; Moore, 2021; Wiest, 2021). Building upon working group discussions of emerging theories and methodologies during PME-NA 2021, in the 2022 working group sessions, we will apply these theories and methods to interview and classroom data to explore concrete ways of studying gender and sexuality in mathematics education that utilize different perspectives. Our goals are to (a) explore how gender and sexuality may be “seen” through different methods of data collection, focusing on how different meanings of gender and sexuality, as they are described and performed, may lead to new insights; and (b) produce a list of research questions and potential projects to consider for future research.
