Feminstisk vetenskapsteori och metodologi

Theme: Gender, Knowledge and Methodology (begins autumn 2020)

The theme presents an overview of central debates in the fields of feminist epistemology and methodology starting in the early, classical discussions of gender, knowledge and power. A key concern is to explore the ways in which feminist epistemology illuminates broader epistemological discussions of the significance of objectivity. Throughout the theme, the interconnections between epistemology and methodology are foregrounded.

Three specific feminist methodological traditions, relevant to a wide array of disciplines and topics, will be explored; creative academic writing, ethnography and historiography. The theme of writing runs through all three strands of methodology. In creative academic writing, the focus is on how writing as a method can contribute to creativity in the research process. Ethnography and historiography are studied with attention to their specific writing genres, and as methodological traditions in which crucial feminist tools and insights have developed.

Theme: Digital Humanities (begins autumn 2020)

New digital tools are changing ways of working and thinking across the range of humanities disciplines. This research school theme is designed to support and develop the work of PhD students from diverse subject areas who wish to use a digital element in their methodology or digital sources in their objects of enquiry. It aims to open up the possibility of digitally-based research methods for students who are not yet aware of their potential for addressing current research questions or exploring new avenues of inquiry.

Drawing on expertise from across the university and bringing in a range of national and international collaborators, the theme aims to showcase inspiring examples of ongoing DH research, in combination with teaching on tools and methods. It offers a series of courses providing practical and theoretical range while giving students the opportunity to develop hands-on skills in digital humanities methods. Each course and the theme overall are designed to act as platforms from which students will explore how they can integrate new approaches in their current and future work.

Theme: The Dynamics of Multilingualism (started Autumn 2019)

The aim of this theme is to address the need for a multidisciplinary approach to global challenges related to increased mobility and multilingualism. In theory, multilingualism as a societal and individual resource holds the promise of engaging other ways of living and thinking, building convivial relationships and ultimately transforming ourselves and our societies.

Students will engage critically with a range of theoretical frameworks in order to explore the ways in which contemporary societal challenges are constructed, mediated and lived through language as well as the methodological challenges posed by globalisation and transnational mobility. This theme connects strongly with contemporary thinking in, for example, sociolinguistics, semiotics, literary and media theory, educational studies, philosophy, and sociology.

The theme starts its second year in the autumn of 2020 and offers one five-credit module per term. The theme is offered in English.

Welcome

Tema: Flerspråkighetens dynamik (startar HT19) — information på svenska

Temats övergripande syfte är att belysa behovet av ett multidisciplinärt förhållningssätt till den globala utmaningen som utgörs av ökad mobilitet och flerspråkighet. Temat utgörs av fyra huvudkomponenter, som behandlar olika språkbruk och andra semiotiska uttryck som uppstår i möten mellan människor från olika kulturella och språkliga bakgrunder.

Space and Place in the Humanities

Theme: Space and Place in the Humanities (started Autumn 2019)

The theme Space and Place in the Humanities addresses questions of how people find meaning in spaces, places, and landscapes, how the organization of spatial dimensions has affected and reflect social relations and identities in past and contemporary societies, and what kind of political, cultural, and social uses it has served. The structure and implementation of the theme is thoroughly multidisciplinary: the students will be acquainted with essential analytical and theoretical concepts from history, archaeology, digital humanities, human geography, art history, architecture, linguistics, and history of religions, which allows for a comprehensive understanding of space and place and comparisons across the disciplines.

The aim of the theme is to give doctoral students knowledge and insight of various aspects associated with spatial theory, as well as to supply them with a set of theoretical and methodological tools that can be applied in research and other specialist work.

The theme runs for two years, beginning in the autumn of 2019 and with one five-credit module being offered per term. The theme will be taught in English.

NB: No further admission is possible to this theme.

Space and Place in the Humanities

Tema: Rumslighet och plats i modern humaniora (startar HT19) — Information på svenska

Temat tar upp frågeställningar om hur människor finner mening genom rum, platser och landskap, hur utformandet av olika rum och platser påverkar och återspeglar sociala relationer och identiteter, både ur ett historiskt och samtida perspektiv, samt vilka politiska, kulturella och sociala ändamål dessa utformningar tjänat.

En möjlighet till samarbete över fakultetsgränserna

Karin Sennefelt är professor i historia vid Stockholms universitet och var kursledare för ett av de teman som gavs inom Humanistiska fakultetens forskarskola. Karin Sennefelt beskriver sina erfarenheter vid forskarskolan som ett tillfälle för tvärvetenskapligt utbyte.
