RESEV 680: Critical Qualitative Research
(3-0) Cr. 3. S.
Prereq: one course in qualitative research
Feminist, indigenous, critical, queer, and other perspectives are used to raise important questions about qualitative research and help us rethink dilemmas of voice, appropriation, collaboration, and difference, and consider ethical and political issues that arise when engaging in research. Readings and assignments will concentrate on reciprocity, reflexivity, decolonization of research methods, and the necessity of engaging in culturally responsive and ethically informed research, particularly when working with colonized or marginalized communities, and when we aim to produce knowledge in the service of social justice and social change.
