  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Re-visiting vaines: Toward a decolonizing framework
           for home economics
    • Abstract: Smith, Mary Gale
      Dr Eleanore Vaines, was an influential scholar in the field of home economics whose scholarly writing is known throughout the world and many consider her ahead of her time. While it is difficult to create a succinct rendition of the totality of Dr Vaines' scholarship, it is probably fair to say that from the beginning she set out to articulate a new professional orientation for home economics, one that would transform professional practice. She maintained that we must continue to transform home economics professional practice by: recognizing ecology as a unifying theme; understanding many ways of knowing and spheres of influence; seeking wholistic approaches to everyday life; and exploring the sacred nature of our place in the world. In this paper, I argue that implicitly she was challenging the canons, norms, and cognitive imperialism of settler colonialism and its influence on home economics. I focus on the synergies between Vaines' theorizing and post-colonial studies suggesting the ways her work can inform a decolonizing framework for home economics.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Shaping an eco-centred future by learning from the
           past
    • Abstract: Chapman, Sherry Ann
      In 1976, Dr Eleanore Vaines invited University of Alberta (U of A) colleagues in Edmonton, Canada to reflect on how higher-education, home-economics curricula could engage students in environmental terms to understand diverse families' needs in everyday life. Over 40 years later, as early warning signs of climate crisis are materializing into full-fledged realities, how are human-ecology/home-economics (HE) professionals preparing students as professionals' How well are HEs shifting their roles away from ego-centricity' This article explores moments in North-American, history for guidance toward an eco-centred future. Studying how the HE field has been complicit with Euro-centric, patriarchal, colonialist ideologies with devastating effects for Indigenous families, how do we reconcile that part of our past with instances when HE professionals pushed against those same ideologies' We have been part of ego-centric problems; yet, we can also contribute to possibilities. With an eco-centred philosophical orientation (Vaines, 1990), I see potential for HEs to integrate spirituality as one of many ways of knowing. Grounding myself in Celtic spiritual tradition, I seek to learn from Indigenous, HE colleagues so that we might, together, describe decolonized roles for the HE profession to accompany diverse families in "the World [as] our Home" (Vaines, 1997, p. 2).

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Two-eyed seeing. Trauma-wise curriculum:
           Siksikees'tsuhkoom (blackfoot lands) and human ecology
    • Abstract: May-Derbyshire, Patricia
      In an era where Home Economics classrooms still reverberate with colonial conceptions of home and family and the traumas associated with the residential school project in Canada, this analysis of Vaines' Human Ecology cannon is weighed for its potential to achieve Two-Eyed Seeing, a curricular framework from Indigenous Scholar Marie Battiste (Mi'kmaq, Potlotek First Nation). By proposing Vaines' Human Ecology as one eye and Nation-specific kinship and land-based ontologies as one eye, this paper calls Home Economists to action, to question, face, and supplant violence present in Home Economics ontologies that continue to disrupt Indigenous family integrity, moving towards trauma-wise curriculum in collaboration with Neighbour Nations. An ontological framework from the Blackfoot Confederacy is used as an example to model bedrock values for any community who has been the target of colonial educational assimilationist policies.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - "The world is our home": Food literacy education and
           vaines' conceptualization of 'ecology'
    • Abstract: Powell, Lisa Jordan; Renwick, Kerry
      Eleanore Vaines developed a conceptualization of ecology for the field of home economics, and created a number of maps to describe her theorising of everyday life and understanding of the complex webs of living systems. Her theoretical work can be applied to help understand food literacy as a set of practices that go beyond individual behaviours and choices, extending to involvement in community efforts to shift to more sustainable and socially just food systems. This article uses Vaines' work, including her "Spheres of Influence" and "Many Ways of Knowing" maps, to reconcile tensions in the discourse around food literacy. Two initiatives in Vancouver, BC, that focus on an ecological approach to learning about food are offered as a way to understand how food literacy can build pathways that integrate natural and social environments. These initatives demonstrate how shared, community locations can be sites for engagement with food in meaningful and transformative ways.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - The impact of poverty on children's educational
           potential Susan Elizabeth
    • Abstract: Enns, Susan Elizabeth
      Twenty-first century home economics continues to evolve. Eleanore Vaines' metaphor "the world is our home" and her encouragement of home economics professionals to engage in reflective, transformative practice is a primary reason for both the evolution and transformation of the discipline in the recent decades. Her eco-centric philosophy demonstrates that we are global citizens who should be seeking global harmony, peace, and justice. The purpose of Vaines' reflective, transformative practice is to change the individual or social order by building a just society for all people. Vaines further stresses the need for home economics professionals to work for the "common good", which includes a focus on the vulnerable, marginalized, and disenfranchised individuals, families, and communities, both in our local neighbourhoods and in the world as our global neighbourhood. This includes working for the "common good" of students living in poverty.

      Children's educational potential is negatively impacted by poverty. Food, health, poor school readiness, impaired growth and development, psychosocial concerns, inadequate funds, and housing are the consequences of poverty and have specific implications in the classroom. This paper considers the specific educational action that teachers and school administrators can take to counteract the effects of poverty while enhancing children's educational potential, such as building social connections with families, building positive connections with students, addressing learning gaps, making education meaningful and relevant, building on the strengths of students at risk for dropping out, and providing for student needs, specifically using home economics to support students.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Virtual professional development: Transformation to
           tech-savvy teachers in class'
    • Abstract: Mugliett, Karen
      This paper emerges from a study carried out to explore ways of how professional development can be conducted to help Home Economics (HE) teachers introduce technology effectively as a pedagogy. This research attempts to build a bridge between educational technology and Home Economics (HE) teachers. It will show how one can support teachers in integrating educational technologies effectively and give appropriate examples of how classroom practice can be improved for the 21st-century learner. An online community was used with teachers of HE in order to diffuse this innovation and offer ongoing support.

      Rogers' (2010) model provided a structure for this dissemination process. A questionnaire was used to achieve the overall interpretation of the impact of the CoP on the knowledge of teachers' use of technology for HE and to identify how effective the Community of Practice (CoP) was. The discussion fora were analysed to bring out the teachers' reactions. Interviews were then used to ensure validity and depth of interpretation.

      The main findings show that the CoP was effective in making the teachers aware of innovative pedagogies, and how to use technology effectively. They also developed favourable attitudes towards technology. However, the interaction was poor as the virtual activity progressed which shows that the participants preferred to receive inofrmation rather than share it, that time might be a barrier worth addressing and that the transformation to a tech-savvy teacher might not take place unless there is ongoing support.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Blind spots of the self-glorification in home
           economics
    • Abstract: Christensen, Jacob Hojgaard
      This paper addresses the prior discussion prompt of Professor Sue L. T. McGregor titled Home Economics Contributions to National Development. The main points of McGregor are summarized, and an interpretation hereof is presented which deduces the content as being a self-glorification of home economics as a profession, which is blind to the many challenges facing the field. The main argument is that home economics should not fall into such a blind narrative about the wonders of the profession, but rather face the challenges, and in a nuanced perspective discuss how to strengthen the impact on national development.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Anti-racist pedagogy: What does it look like in the
           classroom'
    • Abstract: Basque, Katia M; Britto, Mel
      "Racism is a moral issue and of concern for moral educators, with recent social movements such as #BlackLivesMatter highlighting how far we are from obliterating racial oppression and the unearned privilege whiteness confers" (Lynch et al., 2017, p. 129). Vaines suggests that Home Economics is a profession grounded in morality, and one that is in a process of transformation (1997). Should this transformational process not, therefore, hold ongoing issues such as racism as a priority when developing clearer definitions of its mission and the pedagogical models that will enable this mission to be fulfilled' Much thought has gone into deconstructing the multicultural educational model and replacing it with the deliberately critical, anti-racist pedagogical approach, though there remains much room for development of this pedagogy in pre-tertiary education. Our paper provides an introduction to the theoretical principles of anti-racist pedagogy, what it means for students and teachers, as well as specific strategies and lessons that can be used within the Home Economics classroom.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Home economics contributions to national development
    • Abstract: McGregor, Sue LT
      This discussion paper asserts that home economics has a unique role to play in national development. With knowledge of both their nation's respective human condition and national development plans and strategies, home economists can be effective change agents acting as a catalyst between families and governments. Families are integral to national development; secure and thriving families mean a more secure and thriving nation, which in turn bolsters the human condition thereby setting up a positive reciprocal relationship.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Taste as a constitutive element of meaning in food
           education
    • Abstract: Christensen, Jacob H
      Food education 'is a broad term for educational activities within the field of home economics in which children acquire cooking skills and develop a critical awareness of food. This can be part of a subject at schools, and often involves students being instructed in how to follow recipes. This teaching method has positive potential. However, it also faces challenges because students are not encouraged to reflect independently on what they are doing and because their sense of taste is not activated in the learning process. This article presents a study of a specific Danish competition: the Danish championship in food education (DCFE). In this competition, the teaching methods are centred on participation and innovation, thereby activating the sense of taste to a higher degree than most teaching within this educational field. The article argues that taste can be viewed as a constitutive element of meaning which is vital for students' learning processes in connection with food education'.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Valuing the holistic approach
    • Abstract: McGregor, Sue LT
      This think piece strives to make more transparent the significance of the longstanding home economics mantra: "We engage in holistic practice." It clarifies the idea of what constitutes a holistic approach in home economics, prefaced with a brief overview of both holism and holistic practice, including key holistic principles. The line of thinking (i.e., the persuasive argument) developed herein draws on two idioms: "Can't see the forest for the trees" and "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Holistic practice mitigates the chance of insufficiently accounting for significant interrelated aspects of life that impact well-being. For this and other reasons, gaining richer understandings of what constitutes holistic practice is presented as a timely initiative for the profession as it faces the complexity of the new century.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Influence of women's empowerment on household food
           security
    • Abstract: Olumakaiye, MFunke; Popoola, BRachael; Abioye, Blessing
      Food security 'is one of the major elements of development and poverty alleviation and has been the goal of many international and national public organizations. The extent to which gender inequalities in general and the gender gaps in empowerment in particular, thwart attainment of this priority goal is a key concern, given the vital role of women in household food security. This study was conducted to assess the influence of empowerment on household food security among women in Obafemi Awolowo University community. A structured questionnaire was used to elicit relevant information from 540 women in the university community using simple random sampling technique. Women Empowerment (WE) was assessed using Women Decision-making (WDM) ability from Women Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI). Household Food Security (HFS) was also assessed using the accessibility component of food security (physical, social and economic access to food). Data were analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that 28.9% and 20.0% of the women were rated high in WDM (WE) and HFS respectively. The decisions mostly taken by women were food related (73.3%), while the least was purchase of household gadgets like electronics (25.2%). Having a backyard garden as physical access to food (55.6%) and earning salary only as economic access to food (60.7%) had the highest form of access to food. Level of education had a positive and significant relationship with HFS (p = 0.014). Those with secondary education are twice more likely to have access to food (OR = 2.865, CI = 0.247-33.254) than those with other levels of education. Significant association existed between WDM (WE) ability and HFS (χ2 = 43.7, p = 0.013). It was concluded that education and decision-making ability of women are key to women's empowerment and household food security, which has implication on gender related issues'.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - The power of a home economics professional identity
           and professionalism
    • Abstract: McGregor, Sue LT
      This paper develops a case for the idea that the world's image and respect for the home economics profession can be better assured if we can all become grounded in a strong affiliation with and accountability to the profession and each other, fuelled by a strong home economics professional identity and deep professionalism which are sustained with continual professional learning about philosophy, knowledge and practice.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Assessing home economists' spiritual health and
           wellbeing: A case for further study
    • Abstract: Deagon, Jay R; Pendergast, Donna
      The spiritual health dimension is a generally accepted feature of holistic or whole person health and wellbeing in Home Economics arenas. An unexamined area is the spiritual health and wellbeing of Home Economics professionals themselves. This small-scale pilot study assessed the four domains of spiritual health and wellbeing (personal, communal, environmental, transcendental) of sixty-six Home Economists from cross-cultural backgrounds via an anonymous online survey. Analysis revealed that Home Economists identified most with communal aspects of spiritual health and wellbeing including a love of other people, service to others, the importance of family and friendships, and respect for others. As an aspect of Home Economics, spiritual health and wellbeing was acknowledged as important to these Home Economists. There is potential for rich applications in Home Economics; however, very little professional development is focused on this area. This paper argues the case for deeper investigations of spiritual health and wellbeing and the creation of professional development materials.

  • Volume 11 Issue 2 - A food literacy model for food education program
           design and evaluation
    • Abstract: Fordyce-Voorham, Sandra
      Food literacy has emerged as a term used by home economics teachers to describe the knowledge and skills acquired in food education programs in secondary schools. This paper outlines the evolution of food literacy models based on Nutbeam's three-layered healthy literacy model and then proposes a new model for use by teachers to design and evaluate their programs. The model, based on the attributes of several others, is described and exemplified in a 21-item questionnaire. A pilot-survey to test the model was completed by a small convenience sample of 22 15 to 16-year-old students who responded to the questionnaire that covered the three levels of the model. The questionnaire was administered post-completion of a semester unit in food education. The findings showed that the evidence-based model was a reliable tool to evaluate food literacy and skill acquisition. More testing on the model and further development of the survey instrument would need to be performed in similar school settings to validate these preliminary findings.

  • Volume 11 Issue 2 - Changing food culture for food wellbeing
    • Abstract: Wiseman, Juliet; Murphy, Jane; Hewitt-Taylor, Jacqui
      This study investigates what people, in an urban and a rural setting in England, value about their local and home-grown food culture and how this shapes food choices which contribute to a broad definition of Food Wellbeing. Qualitative, ethnographic methods were used to uncover aspects of food relationships which are positive for the environment, communities and personal health. The connections provided by direct contact with local fresh food are explored. Communities such as those featured in this research, with high levels of food expertise, can contribute towards improving food cultures to attain better health outcomes for the planet, for people and for the individual.

  • Volume 11 Issue 2 - Ambassadors for the profession, not just rebranding
    • Abstract: McGregor, Sue LT
      Inspired by the longstanding home economics discourse around its professional image, this position paper explains the essence and benefits of branding, rebranding and the new idea of ambassadorships. Ambassadors are on a mission to work on behalf of the profession in ways more substantial than tweaking images (i.e., branding and rebranding). They know that rhetoric (persuasive and effective communication), dialogue (coming to common understandings), and diplomacy (skill and tact dealing with recalcitrant or misguided people) are needed. The ambassador approach respects the longstanding concern for our professional image and shifts the discourse to our reality (here and now constraints and opportunities). An artful and strategic blend of branding, rebranding and ambassadorship is proposed as an important strategy for future proofing the profession and discipline.
