** Researching the Margins: Feminist Critical Policy Analysis as a Framework of the Center
Time & Location
About the Event
Decades of social science research documents the harmful effects of violence, and in particular gender-based and sexual violence, on adolescent female mental, physical, and socioemotional health. These effects not only can impair development, but prompt negative short- and long-term problems in adulthood. Despite the existence of long-standing multi-level prevention and intervention legislation and programming, gaps in educational policy research and educator practice remain. In this talk, Lemke presents feminist critical policy analysis (FCPA) as an integral framing device in the examination of educational policy-making and those normative, but often hidden arrangements of power, which can have intended, unintended, and enacted discriminatory consequences for women and girls. Lemke also invites critical discussion and reflection on nuanced ethical, methodological, and political considerations, both within and outside of field research.
