Section Information for Fall 2022
This class will provide an introduction to feminist approaches to social research. Students will collect, analyze, and write-up research data as you examine many of the central methodological issues and questions raised by feminist scholars. These include feminist critiques of positivism, feminist standpoint theory, social action research models, and feminist engagements with ethical concerns in doing research with human subjects. We emphasize a learning-by-doing approach to prepare students to conduct research. This course is designated as an RS level course and its development is being supported by OSCAR, Mason’s Students as Scholars Program (Oscar.gmu.edu). This means that you will not only be learning about feminist approaches to social research, but you will be doing original feminist research. You will design and conduct your own research project to answer your own research question and will share the results of your research in the Gender Research Conference as well as another scholarly venue. Cross listed with COMM 385-001 and WMST 410-001.
