SOCI.4050: Feminist Methodologies

Welcome to Feminist Methodologies with Professor Najarian Souza

We will explore feminist strategies for creating, implementing, and analyzing a qualitative research project that is grounded in the everyday lives of people while situating them in a social, political, and economic context. We will also investigate how to use a variety of qualitative approaches while doing a feminist project and the ways in which feminism can enlighten understandings of “traditional” qualitative methods.
