Encouraging Gender Analysis in Research Practice
Thien, Deborah
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v33 n3 p351-367 Sep 2009
Few resources for practical teaching or fieldwork exercises exist which address gender in geographical contexts. This paper adds to teaching and fieldwork resources by describing an experience with designing and implementing a "gender intervention" for a large-scale, multi-university, bilingual research project that brought together a group of (non-gender specialist) researchers and student research assistants. Providing detailed descriptions of a facilitated workshop and a field log exercise, the aim is to offer specific examples of how researchers can keep gender on the research agenda. Substantive reporting of such details also works toward an open research process that allows for debate, methodological critique and ongoing revision. This in turn contributes to maintaining a relevant and rigorous qualitative research practice within geography. (Contains 4 figures and 4 notes.)
