Learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student is familiar with the most influential approaches in feminist research. The students learn to understand the interconnectedness of epistemology, methodology and research design. The course prepares students to make well-grounded choices in their Master's thesis. Students will write Master's thesis research proposals during the course.


The course focuses on methodological questions in feminist research. It comprises an overview of some of the most influential research approaches, which include intersectionality, standpoint theories, affectivities, postcoloniality, gendered practices and new materialisms. Furthermore, the course explores the relationships between different methods (such as discourse analysis, ethnography, close reading, historical research) to questions of knowledge production.
