Researching Gender: Theories, Methodologies and Practices - SOCI706

This unit provides a survey of the field of gender studies by tracing its origin in feminist scholarship and familiarising students with key debates and theories, past and present. This unit welcomes both gender studies majors seeking further theoretical training, as well as those from other disciplines and new to the field for whom the content provides an intensive introduction. The emphasis will be on gender as an object of inquiry, as well as an epistemological and methodological practice. The unit is designed to support students in their journey to becoming researchers, and to help them towards finding a lens through which to examine a research topic of their own.
