Feminist Perspectives and Methodologies
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
About the session
Taking inspiration from the epistemological and theoretical critiques and developments in feminisms, feminist methods and methodologies are about more than just including women in research or women studying women.
Feminist methods tend to offer a challenge to knowledge production itself interlinked with feminist political intent, ethical processes, egalitarianism, and the examination of power, dominance, inequality, or discrimination.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the history of feminist methods in concert with the growth of feminist thought. We illustrate both specific methodologies developed in and through feminist thought, and how feminist thought can be brought to bear on other methods and methodologies (e.g., interviews, fieldwork, ethnography, media studies), as well as on other aspects of the research process (e.g., ethics, representation).
