Sociology 392. Feminist Research

This seminar examines critiques of traditional social science and its methods, focusing on the controversies that surround the scientific method, objectivity, politics and the purpose of research. We will explore “feminist methodology” and debate whether such a thing even exists. The seminar also focuses on models of feminist research and looks at the connections between the personal, political and intellectual.
