Gender Analysis in Research

17/05/2022 to 18/05/2022

This course aims to enable researchers to include a gender perspective either in their PhD theses or in their research projects and in the scientific articles that may result from their investigations. The theoretical framework that sustains the inclusion of a gender perspective in research will be described. Likewise, the contents will show researchers how to include a gender perspective in each of the phases of the research process: from the selection of topic to be investigated and the choice of sample to the analysis of results and subsequent publication. The main sexist biases typical of mainstream investigations and their effect on their final quality will be presented. Finally, the course will also review the relevance of a gender approach in several research fields and will explain specific instances of what a gender analysis involves. The school will be imparted by Dr. Capitolina Díaz.
