Feminist Theory
  • Informs our understandings of how language shapes our world views
    • “Other”-Woman is defined in opposition to man
      • Simone De Beauvoir, The Second Sex
    • In a transnational context, 2/3 world peoples are defined in opposition to “First World” or “Developed World” peoples
  • Sexual division of labor settled into its current division
    • “Development” of industrialization
    • This development is transferred to former colonies
  • Situated / Embodied knowledge is an alternate way of understanding how knowledge is developed, which knowledge is valued, and who gets a say in both
    • Women’s perspectives can be centered
  • Research Methods feminists advocate for include
    • Multi-disciplinary, multi-method, combination of qualitative and quantitative data
change around the edges
“Change around the edges”
  • Documentation of women’s work in agrarian production research asks:
    • What work do women do?
    • What resources, in what quantities, do they have to work with?
    • What are they responsible for?
    • What are their practices?
    • What costs do they bear?
    • What benefits do they achieve?

participatory research
Participatory research
  • Donna Haraway, Feminist science theorist
    • “Objectivity is not the god-trick of seeing everything from nowhere but rather that objectivity is necessarily embodied and, therefore, all knowledges are situated and partial”
  • Participatory biophysical research
    • Is inherently collaborative
    • It is intentionally NOT exploitative of research partners
    • Knowingly embedded in a social and political context
