Samenvatting

The supplemented edition of this important reader includes a substantive new introduction by the author on the changing nature of feminist methodology. It takes into account the implications of a major new study included for this first time in this book on poverty and gender (in)equality, and it includes an article discussing the ways in which this study was conducted using the research methods put forward by the first edition. This article begins by explaining why a new and better poverty metric is needed and why developing such a metric requires an alternative methodological approach inspired by feminism. Feminist research is a growing tradition of inquiry that aims to produce knowledge not biased by inequitable assumptions about gender and related categories such as class, race, religion, sexuality, and nationality."Just Methods" is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in a range of disciplines. Rather than being concerned with particular techniques of inquiry, the interdisciplinary readings in this book address broad questions of research methodology. They are designed to help researchers think critically and constructively about the epistemological and ethical implications of various approaches to research selection and research design, evidence-gathering techniques, and publication of results.A key theme running through the readings is the complex interrelationship between social power and inequality on the one hand and the production of knowledge on the other. A second and related theme is the inseparability of research projects and methodologies from ethical and political values."

Recensie(s)

An important contribution to teaching. This text is richly informed by an intersectional appreciation-namely, that concerns of gender inequality cannot be separated from other systems of oppression. -Nancy Tuana, DuPont/Class of 1949 Professor of Philosophy, Penn State University A splendid book from which students in philosophy, social science, and women's studies can greatly benefit. -Sandra Harding, Professor of Education, UCLA, and former coeditor of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society Very thorough, this book brings together historical debates with more current debates and issues. No other text has this kind of coverage. -Kamala Kempadoo, Associate Professor of Social Science, York University Jaggar's other anthologies have been invaluable teaching texts for me and for many of my colleagues for years now. This newest contribution will be another important resource for feminist teachers. -Lisa Heldke, Professor of Philosophy, Gustavus Adolphus College A breath of fresh air and a wealth of information ... this text offers a much-needed and well-balanced cross-disciplinary account of feminist methods. The authors tackle and provide thorough discussions of various issues, including the place of quantitative methodology in feminist research. The book should be in every feminist scholar's library and is perfect for graduate methods courses. -Mary Caprioli, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota-Duluth This exceptional volume is not only interdisciplinary but also transnational in its coverage. Jaggar has assembled the best of classic articles and illuminated their relevance through instructive and accessible introductions to each of 13 sections. -V. Spike Peterson, Professor of Political Science with affiliated status in Women's Studies, International Studies, Latin American Studies, and Comparative Cultural and Literary Studies, University of Arizona Jaggar edits an essential resource for instruction on feminism and methodologies. ... Highly recommended. Programs in women's studies, and libraries collecting in the philosophy of the social sciences and life sciences and methodology more generally. -CHOICE
