PhD Course on Critical Feminist and Intersectional Research Methods in the Social Sciences

Radboud Gender & Diversity Studies/NOG – November 14-15, 2024

This (3ECTS) course is an introduction on how to employ various research methods in  interdisciplinary social science from a critical and intersectional gender perspective. We will touch upon classic and modern debates regarding intersectional feminist methodologies. After this course, students will have a better understanding of intersectional feminist methodologies. They will be able to critically reflect upon the choice and application of research methods and analysis from an intersectional gender perspective in their own PhD research. The course takes place over two full days, with lectures, discussions of literature, and conversations about the research projects of the participants. During the course, we will pay attention to the different phases of the research process. In small group discussions, you will be asked to reflect on the various aspects of your own research project: research design, research question, operationalization, feminist research ethics, data collection, data-analysis and interpretation, and writing.

To receive a certificate, you must have submitted the assignment before the start of the course and actively participated in both days, meaning that you have read the assigned literature (two articles per session), prepared for discussions and contributed to the conversation.

Organizers: Dr. Ea Utoft and Prof. dr. Marieke van den Brink
