Feminist praxis : research, theory, and epistemology in feminist sociology by Liz Stanley( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feminist social scientists often find that carrying feminism into practice in their research is neither easy nor straightforward. Designed precisely with feminist researchers in mind, Feminist Praxis gives detailed analytic accounts of particular examples of feminist research, showing how feminist epistemology can translate into concrete feminist research practices. The contributors, all experts in their field, give practical examples of feminist research practices, covering colonialism, child-minding, gay men, feminist social work, cancer, working with young girls using drama, Marilyn Monroe, statistics - even the writing and reading of research accounts. These detailed accounts are located in relation to the position of feminism and of women generally in the academic world, and looked at in the light of discussions, debates, and controversies about feminist methodology across several disciplines. Feminist Praxis is unique in combining theoretical discussion of feminist methodology with detailed accounts of practical research processes. This blend of the practical and the theoretical will make it an invaluable text for feminists carrying out research at all levels, and it will also appeal to those interested in the relationship between theory, method and feminist epistemology

12 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Section One examines the creation of Mass-Observation and the epistemological and methodological stance which led to the world's first national random sample survey of sex, as well as the major British sex surveys carried out from Mass-Observation's 1949 'Little Kinsey' through to the 1994 Wellcome 'National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles'. Section Two contains the full 'Little Kinsey' report, which many contemporary researchers allude to but which has not been published before now. Section Three discusses the structure and argument of 'Little Kinsey' and compares its approach with that of the feminist sex surveys carried out by Shere Hite through a detailed discussion of the Hite Reports. Illuminating reading for the general reader, essential reading for students on Sexuality, Methodology, Women's Studies and British Modern Social History courses, and a key text for all Sociologists

Mourning becomes - : post/memory, commemoration and the concentration camps of the South African War by Liz Stanley( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fascinating work challenges many of the accepted facts about the concentration camps run by the British during the South African War. Liz Stanley demonstrates that much of what we have traditionally understood about these camps originates from the testimony which was solicited, selected and published by key women activists within Boer proto-nationalist circles. Using detailed archival evidence, Stanley shows that much of the history of the camps results from a deliberate imposition of 'post/memory' -- a process by which what was 'remembered' was shaped and reshaped to support the development of a racialised nationalist framework. Many of the camps' occupants died from successive epidemics of measles, typhoid, enteritis and pneumonia rather than deliberate ill-treatment. However the book shows how mourning for those who died was overridden by state commemorative activities concerned with promoting pan-Boer proto-nationalist aspirations. The innovative and groundbreaking approach of the author also invites the reader to explore the meanings and effects of the many commemorative sites which still powerfully mark the South African landscape. This solidly-grounded yet provocative study will make fascinating reading for those interested in the history of South Africa and the issues of memory and commemoration."--Jacket
Feminist narrative research : opportunities and challenges( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the rich, diverse opportunities and challenges afforded by research that analyses the stories told by, for and about women. Bringing together feminist scholarship and narrative approaches, it draws on empirical material, social theory and methodological insights to provide examples of feminist narrative studies that make explicit the links between theory and practice. Examining the story as told and using examples of narratives told about childhood sexual abuse, domestic/relationship abuse, motherhood, and seeking asylum, it raises wider issues regarding the role of storytelling for understanding and making sense of women's lives. This thought-provoking work will appeal to students and scholars of women's studies, feminist and narrative researchers, social policy and practice, sociology, and research methods" -- From the publisher
The archive project : archival research in the social sciences by Niamh Moore( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent scholarship on archival research has raised questions concerning the character and impact of 'the archive' on how the traces of the past are researched, the use and analysis of different kinds of archived data, methodological approaches to the practicalities involved and what kind of theory is drawn on and contributed to by such research. This book builds on these questions, exploring methodological ideas and debates and engaging with a range of archival projects and practices

Documents of life : analysing letters and other found data in researching 'Whites Writing Whiteness' in South Africa by Liz Stanley( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exemplar is a document dated 8 February 1893 signed on behalf of 'the Swazi Nation', accompanied by some related materials. It is 'found' data: a 'document of life' that does not result from any researcher-involvement or prompting, but was used by the people who produced it in furthering their particular concerns and plans. The exemplar shows how documentary data can be analysed by attending to the content of individual documents, and also to the data as a whole and the wider social context, and will be of most use to those interested in analysing letters and other documents of life
