Epistemologies and Methodologies for Gendered Research

Project Status: Completed


Work in this area has highlighted the importance of constructivist approaches to understandings of gender, of locating women’s agency and voice within particular structural contexts, and of unpacking the complexities underlying processes of meaning-making. In this exploration, the use of multiple and mixed methods are inevitable, moving beyond disciplinary boundaries.
