For this assignment, you will have to critically evaluate an existing feminist research study from a relevant scholarly peer-reviewed journal.
1.Choose a journal article from a scholarly peer-reviewed journal.
2.Read it a few times, taking notes.
3.As you write the evaluation, you need to show you are now familiar with feminist theories/methodologies (epistemology and research practice)/research methods.
Please make sure the article presents the research as feminist – not all gender-related research uses a feminist frame.
Reading the article:
Please take notes about the feminist frame
Highlight parts of the article that you may want to quote
Take notes on what you see as contributions to feminist research within the topic area of the article
Take notes on what you see as limitations in terms of methodology and content
As you read the article, double-check relevant GN400 readings, and look for additional scientific sources on feminist theories/methodologies/methods which may support your evaluation
Structuring the evaluation:
1.Identify the background (research area, disciplinary area, feminist goal and other elements you may find relevant).
2.Consider the quality of the research question, taking into account the literature the research builds on
3.Consider the theoretical framework
4.Consider the methodology (epistemology, self-reflexivity, research ethics)
5.Consider the methods used
6.Consider the results
As you go through points 2-6, you have to describe the research as presented in the article; emphasize what you believe to be its contributions; identify what you believe to be its limitations; suggest what elements could/should have been added and/or further explored.
You need to back up your evaluation by using literature on feminist theory, methodology and methods. Please use relevant GN400 readings, and expand your search from there.
