Call for Papers on Gender-Related Violence: Social Sciences’ Research & Methods.
Studies of gender-related violence (GRV) are concerned with problematising the structural and cultural hierarchies that create normativities and marginalities by gender and all the intersecting dimensions of social life, especially age, race, sexuality, class and ability. The concept was intended to expand on gender-based violence (GBV) to strengthen intersectional thinking and its power in research and interventions. From whichever discipline and theoretical approach gender and violence are studied, specific methodological challenges arise that require sensitive, private and anonymised, collaborative, empowering and intersectional research approaches. It needs the very highest standards of feminist research and indeed calls into question what we mean by feminist research. What do both experienced and early career researchers have to share as lessons about intersectional methodological and ethical practice? What innovations in this area offer good practice for research more broadly? This Special Issue will bring together early career researchers and established names in the field internationally to share their insights around intersectional methodologies for researching gender-related violence.
