Promotional Information

What makes a research project feminist? Miller's annotated bibliography brings together titles that address some aspect of this question and of feminist research--journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, and reports.

About the Author

CONNIE MILLER is associate librarian and coordinator of computer-assisted information services at Indiana University. She is the author of several articles and of the book The Technical and Cultural Prerequisites for the Invention of Printing in China and the West (1983).

Reviews

"Has feminism changed the content and character of research? Do feminist researchers behave differently? This pioneering bibliography cites more than 400 English-language sources published between the 1920s and 1990 that explore these questions in relation to research tasks, techniques, and approaches. The articles, books, and reports identified here represent work by feminists across a broad range of disciplines from anthropology to science to urban planning (literary criticism, philosophy, education, nursing, and medicine are the noted omissions). While acknowledging feminist resistance to segmented knowledge and compartmentalization, Miller and Treitel nevertheless organize their work by subject-oriented chapters, reasonably assuming that most users will approach the material in this manner. Annotations are informative and readable, their usefulness enhanced by the introductions to each chapter which provide an overview of the annotated sources and "outline the consequences of the feminist critique." Subject and author indexes offer additional access. Together with Wendy Frost's Feminist Literary Criticism, this bibliography begins to map critical terrain in research and scholarship extending far beyond the boundaries of women's studies. An essential addition to all upper-division undergraduate and research collections; also recommended for large public libraries."-Choice
"This is a valuable introduction to feminist research, not only because of the range of material presented but because of the length of the annotations. It is not simply a bibliography--it could serve as a textbook on feminist research methodology."-Exception Human Experience
