Feminist Community Research

Case Studies and Methodologies

Feminist community research is a collaborative methodology that holds the promise of building a more just society. But in the absence of critical analysis and responsible use of power, the approach can lead to naive or harmful practices. This interdisciplinary volume acknowledges the challenges that researchers can encounter, and discusses strategies that have been employed to overcome them. By sharing collective wisdom gained from research among diverse groups - from immigrant and Aboriginal women in Vancouver to poverty-reduction practitioners in Vietnam - his book will help researchers and government agencies build better bridges between research institutions and communities.

Endorsements

"Instead of papering over difference, otherness, and disparity, this book takes these issues head on. Fully engaging the possibilities and conditions of the present, this work addresses the variety of conundrums that permeate efforts toward feminist critical research with policy relevance."—Patti Lather, professor and author of Getting Lost: Feminist Practices Toward a Double(d) Science
