5- Feminist Research and Activism: Possibilities an d Challenges by
Alexandra Zavos (Panteion University)

This module addresses the topic of activist research as a
methodological approach informed by feminist and post-structuralist
theory, as well as discourse analysis. Some of the key issues which we
will consider in our exploration of activist research include:
positionality, interpellation and performativity; reflexivity and
(intellectual) autobiography; co-construction as a political and
representational practice; accountability and feminist politics of
alliance. Working with key texts as well as our own reflexive accounts
of activist and/or research experiences, we will try to address the
intersections between epistemological debates, affective engagements
and political practices, which are at the heart of this approach.
