WGS 285 Feminist Research Design

This interdisciplinary course begins from the question, “What is feminist research?”  It explores how intersectional feminist thought shapes the research questions we ask, the methods we use, our
relationships with research participants, and how to design research projects that lead to social change. This course will operate on two interrelated dimensions, focusing on: 1) the conceptual
frameworks underlying different approaches to feminist research, and 2) the practical techniques for designing and conducting interdisciplinary feminist projects. [GM1, W]
