Introduction to feminist research methodology

One more year, we are happy to announce our virtual course on "Introduction to feminist research methodology". As some of you already know by now, this year, due to many different problems we have taken the decision of delaying the beginning of the course until December 2011.

This implies that maybe some of you who could not register in the course because of date incompatibilities are now able to take part in the course, and also that we have a chance to spread the information about the course for some more weeks. You can find more information on the course (and some of the other activities we are involved in) in our webpage:

Additional info on the course

12th December 2011 - 30th April 2012

The course is virtual and structured in five thematic modules of 26 days each. Each module begins with the viewing of a conference and will be taught by an expert in the field. The course also contemplates an initial time of presentation and familiarization with the virtual classroom, and a time for completion of the final work.

The language of the course will be English, but students may deliver their final work in Catalan, Italian, Castilian, Portuguese, Greek. All videos will be available in English. The bibliography will be mostly in English and may include complementary text in other languages (Castilian, Catalan and French).
