Invitation to PhD wokshop on "Feminist methodologies: Workshop on field relations and methodological reflections”
This course on feminist methodologies addresses both those explicitly employing a poststructuralist feminist methodology, but also those simply curious about how such an approach may inform concrete fieldwork. The target group for the course includes both those about to do fieldwork and those who would like to engage in further reflection on the outcome of already accomplished fieldwork.
17.08.2022 kl. 09.00 - 17.00
We wish to engage with PhD students who are producing/have produced qualitative material (e.g. in the form of interviews, observations, ethnographic field work etc.) and discuss how this aspect of their PhD work relates to their theoretical framework. Wishing to establish the link between the concrete fieldwork and more abstract theoretical and methodological assumptions, the course takes its starting point in two questions:1) What was/is my own position vis-à-vis my research participants in my own concrete fieldwork? 2) How do my methodological reflections establish the premises for producing qualitative material?
NB: The course takes place immediately prior to the Danish Gender Research conference in Copenhagen on 18 - 19 August 2022.
The workshop takes place at Aalborg University
Marlene Spanger and Helene Pristed Nielsen, both from Department of Politics and Society at Aalborg University.

Application deadline: 1 June 2022.
Please note that to participate, you will need to send a 2-3 page ‘pre-reflection paper’ outlining initial ideas for answering our questions “1) What was/is my own position vis-à-vis my research participants in my own concrete fieldwork? 2) How do my methodological reflections establish the premises for producing qualitative material?”.
