What makes research feminist? Is it different from research on, by or about women? Are there specific feminist research methods? What is feminist epistemology? How are aspects of feminist theory applied in conducting research? These are some of the questions that this unit will address as it introduces students to recent feminist research methodologies in a range of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. The unit will explore differing practical modes of feminist research in addition to enhancing students' own research skills. Students develop and document their own research projects as part of the unit.
