What is feminist scholarship and how is it done? And what does it mean to claim that scholarship is feminist? This course explores these questions through comparative analysis of scholarship by feminists working in disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. We will examine fundamental topics in feminist research, including the politics of knowledge production, forms of evidence, connections between experience and authority, the role of the researcher in the research process, intersections of inequalities and identities, and the relations between method and theory. The overall goal of the course is to help students enrich their own scholarship through a deeper understanding of feminist methodologies and the basis upon which scholarship makes its claims.
