This book provides theoretical and empirical tools to explore some of the questions which lie at the heart of current debates around researching gender. It addresses issues such as: What is the best way to reflect the complexity of gender issues when choosing a research project? How can the changing meaning of gender be fixed in order to do complete a research project? How can the dynamic and socially produced aspects of gender be interpreted? How can theory and method influence one another during research? Researching gender has become increasing important in order to advance our understanding of how gender operates in our society and the implications it has for social cohesion. By combining a critical approach with the exploration of contemporary dilemmas, this book succeeds in offering students an accessible look at this often highly theoretical area.The author provides case studies which address the issues at the heart of research work on race and offers clear guidance for successful evidence-based research work.Researching Genderis key reading for students and researchers who are seeking to critically assess approaches to gender and engage with contemporary debates.
