Synopsis:

"Challenging Situatedness" contends that the production of knowledge is just that - a production, and one fraught with intrinsic and often unconscious biases. In fact, to assume that scientific research is inherently objective, neutral, and therefore genderless can, quite literally, be harmful to one's health. The contributors to this volume instead argue for a situated knowledge, a research model that acknowledges different cultural realities and actively articulates context-rich ways of knowing. Drawing on international research studies - from Cameroon, Ghana, India, and Sweden, among others - "Challenging Situatedness" is a vital exploration of feminist theory in practice.

About the Author:

Ericka Engelstad is professor of archaeology at the University of Tromso. Siri Gerrard is associate professor in the Department of Planning and Community Studies at the University of Tromso.
