Book Description

New Feminist Research Ethics re-examines the place of the ethical in feminist research and identifies new ethical priorities for feminist researchers. As urgent social, political and environmental challenges demand new ethical sensibilities, contributors revisit the relationship between feminism and research to ask what it means to be an ethical feminist researcher now. They explore how hierarchies of privilege have shaped our understandings of research ethics and question how evolving understandings of feminist research ethics sit alongside formal institutional ethics processes. Contributors also situate feminist research ethics in the context of a broader ethics of care and repair. Importantly, New Feminist Research Ethics acknowledges the need for feminist ethical research frameworks that encompass multiple perspectives and draw from diverse traditions of knowing.  The volume brings together established and emerging scholars, and perspectives from sociology, history, gender studies, archival studies, cultural studies, and architecture. It was originally published as a special issue of the journal Australian Feminist Studies.
