Survey Research | Women's Studies (General)
Catherine E. Harnois makes feminist theory, particularly multiracial feminist theory, accessible and relevant to survey researchers. She assists students and researchers in incorporating these theories into survey design and analysis and shows how this can offer substantive insights into the social world that have been underutilized to date by survey researchers.
”The book speaks to readers in a number of social science disciplines. It will improve standard methods of survey research and provide feminist scholars with useful tools.”
“This book makes important contributions to the study of intersectionality in the social sciences. It provides interesting and clear critiques of current survey instruments and analysis and demonstrates how alternative models might elucidate our understandings of the world.”
”The author has created a book that is comprehensive in its scope, widely accessible and on the forefront of feminist research. Multiracial feminist theory has remained on the margins for too many, for far too long. This book brings multiracial feminism center stage by making it our starting point for doing research.”
“This book addresses a real gap in feminist methods literature.”
A very good book but supplemental to the course. depends very much on dissertation subject
