Work (still) in progress: Establishing the value of gendered innovations in the social sciences

By Fiona Jenkins, Helen Keane and Claire Donovan

 

Abstract

In present institutional contexts, where perceptions of the ‘excellence’ of research shape funding decisions and career paths, and where many disciplinary fields continue to construct images of the social, economic and political world that are at best indifferent to questions of gender and at worst perpetuate ways of thinking intimately bound up with the preservation of gender inequality and subordination, it may be timely to reflect upon and construct accounts precisely of why gender matters in social science fields.
