Feminist Research and Criticism

Course Description

Satisfies Behavioral Science General Education Requirement

This course is centrally concerned with how feminists in the social sciences produce knowledge, what we do with that knowledge, and if the process is any different because we are feminists. We will examine feminist critiques of social science research methodogies, questions of feminist epistemology, and how feminists struggle with those questions in our work. We will be reading exemplars from anthropology, history, political science, psychology and sociology. Prerequisite: Sociology 2950 or equivalent.
