Research conference/Ph.D course: Gender as an analytical dimension - theoretical positions - methodological consequences
The course is organised by the National research School in Gender Studies in collaboration with gender research centers and communities in Norway.
Registration by 15 October 2016 (to be announced at KILDENs website)
In 2014 the National Research School in Gender Research organised a course on the theoretical positions in current Norwegian gender research and how different scholars use the concept of gender in their own research. In this year’s course we take this issue one step further and ask: do theoretical positions translate into methodological choices? In what ways and to what extent do theoretical and methodological choices depend on the topic of the research, the research questions, and on the phenomena one wants to grasp? What are the range and limits for different theoretical and methodological approaches? What are different theories and methods suited for, and for what might they be less suitable?
