How can the changing meaning of gender be fixed in order to do complete a research project? How can the dynamic and socially produced aspects of gender be interpreted? How can theory and method influence one another during research? These questions lie at the heart of good research and raise issues that need to be understood in order to produce valid, evidence-based findings that truly reflect gender as a concept in the twenty-first century. This book critically assesses the key debates to offer readers a clear insight into this highly theorized field so that they can effectively carry out their own successful research work in an ethical and rigorous manner. Through the use of engaging case studies the author highlights the most important issues that must be considered and addressed while carrying out research and writing up findings. Researching Gender is key reading for students and researchers who are seeking to critically assess approaches to gender and engage with contemporary debates.
