Description

The QUALITY project at CRASSH welcomes Prof Sharon Crasnow to share some of her work on feminist methodology and feminist epstemology. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion and question session.

Feminist methodologies and feminist epistemologies are closely connected. For example, standpoint methodology as used by feminist sociologists – Patricia Hill Collins, Dorothy Smith, and others – informed some of the early work on standpoint epistemology as feminist philosophers sought to give an account of how feminist methodologies produces knowledge. The project was bogged down in addressing concerns about situated knowledge that were either misplaced or not unique to feminist approaches to knowledge production: issues about objectivity and the identity of knowers. I explore the current state of the discussion and other philosophical issues raised by feminist methodologies.

This event is now fully booked.

 


This event is hosted by the ERC-funded project ‘Qualitative and Quantitative Social Science: A Unified Logic of Causal Inference?’. QUALITY is funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (ERC grant agreement no. 715530)
