2011 (English)In: Theories and Methodologies in Postgraduate Feminist Research: Researching Differently / [ed] Rosemarie Buikema, Gabriele Griffin, Nina Lykke, New York: Routledge , 2011, 135-149 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]


The chapter discusses how, on the one hand, feminist theorizing leads towards radical multi-, inter-, trans- and postdisciplinarity, while, on the other hand, the field is so well-developed and established by now that it can pass and claim academic authority as a discipline. Against this background, the author discusses how different feminist epistemological positions may lead to different dilemmas and approaches to the question of disciplining. Drawing on the epistem-ontological framework of feminist scholar Karen Barad and locating herself in a postconstructionist position, she explores problems and potentials of a definition of the area as a postdisciplinary discipline or post-discipline.
