This unit aims to prepare students to undertake extended research within the broad, interdisciplinary arena of feminist scholarship. It will pose a range of questions such as: What is feminist epistemology? What makes research feminist? Are there specific feminist research methods? What particular ethical issues are raised by feminist research? How, as researchers, do we deal with the political nature of feminist research? This unit will explore differing practical modes of feminist research and students will be required to develop and document their own research projects as part of this unit.
