Getting Lost: Feminist Efforts toward a Double(d) Science
Marks the trajectory of the author’s work as a feminist methodologist.
In this follow-up to her classic text Troubling the Angels, an experimental ethnography of women with AIDS, Patti Lather deconstructs her earlier work to articulate methodology out of practice and to answer the question: What would practices of research look like that were a response to the call of the wholly other? She addresses some of the key issues challenging social scientists today, such as power relations with subjects in the field, the crisis in representation, difference, deconstruction, praxis, ethics, responsibility, objectivity, narrative strategy, and situatedness. Including a series of essays, reflections, and interviews marking the trajectory of the author’s work as a feminist methodologist, Getting Lost will be an important text for courses in sociology of science, philosophy of science, ethnography, feminist methodology, women and gender studies, and qualitative research in education and related social science fields.
Patti Lather is Professor of Cultural Foundations of Education at the Ohio State University. She is the coauthor (with Chris Smithies) of Troubling the Angels: Women Living with HIV/AIDS and Getting Smart: Feminist Research and Pedagogy With/in the Postmodern.
