Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A stellar cast of authors discuss and describe feminist research, reflecting the state of feminist discourse in sociology.... its high quality makes it a must in sociology and women's studies collections." --Choice

"... empowering... thought-provoking... " --Gender and Society

"... a valuable addition to the literature on feminism and method that reveals important discrepancies and shared themes in its chapters." --Contemporary Sociology

In this interdisciplinary collection of articles by internationally recognized feminist scholars, the authors examine efforts to apply feminist principles to the research act. Each stage of the research process is examined, from sampling techniques to mass media packaging and marketing of feminist research. The essays address both abstract philosophical questions and the more practical ways theories are translated into feminist inquiry.

Synopsis:

The authors in Beyond Methodology examine the efforts to apply feminist principles to the research act. Their essays address both abstract philosophical questions about the way feminists come to know or apprehend women's social realities and the more practical way these assumptions are translated into feminist inquiry.
