Summer school Feminist research in the social sciences and humanities – Helsinki

This practical course educates students in how to do and carry out feminist research. We will focus on how feminist scholars challenge dominant theories of knowledge and the major methodologies employed in the social sciences and humanities.

Through lectures and workshops, we will ask how feminist theory shapes the kinds of research questions we ask, the types of materials we use, the methodologies we choose, and how we define our relationships with our subjects/materials.

Students are expected to conduct a short pre-assignment, actively participate in the workshop discussions, and critically reflect throughout the course.
