Feminist Engaged Research

Feminist Engaged Research
What is feminist engaged research? What are its methods? How does approaching research in a feminist manner influence the kinds of questions we can ask, as well as our potential answers? How has feminist research been useful to activists and how might it continue to be? How have feminists practicing engaged research centered race, place, class, and ability in their analyses of gender and sexuality? This feminist theory/methods hybrid course takes as a starting point these questions. We will think through what feminist engaged research means, develop strategies for conducting such research, and consider the relation of knowledge production to power, justice, and action. Students will grapple with how to apply course material to their own engaged research projects, with the two-fold goal of pushing the boundaries of academic thought and also producing scholarship that is useful beyond academia(GSFS 0320 or instructor approval). 3 hrs.
