The second edition of the Handbook of Feminist Research: Theory and Praxis, presents both a theoretical and practical approach to conducting social science research on, for, and about women. The primary goal of the Handbook is to enable readers toŠdevelop an understanding of feminist research by introducing a range of feminist epistemologies, methodologies, and methods that have had a significant impact on feminist research practice and women√ s studies scholarship. The overall goals of the second edition of the Handbook continue to be that of providing a set of clearly defined research concepts that are devoid of as much technical language as possible, recognizing that our audience also includes students and others new to the field. The second edition of the Handbook continues to engage readers with cutting edge debates in the field as well as the practical applications and issues for those whose research affects social policy and social change. The second edition of the Handbook also expands on the wealth of interdisciplinary understanding of feminist research praxis that is grounded in a tight link between epistemology, methodology and method. The second edition of this Handbook will provide researchers with the tools for excavating subjugated knowledge on women√ s lives and the lives of other marginalized groups with the goals of empowerment and social change.
