Feminist Research Methods, Design Approaches, and Project Development
In this multimodal composition course, we will broaden our definition of writing to produce various types of texts that employ multiple modes of communication like sounds, words, images, body movement, etc. Our subject of inquiry in this course will be the intersection of feminism and multimodality. As such, we will create social justice oriented texts. We will also use our feminist lens in the qualitative and theoretical research methods that we employ to gather data for the texts we create, and a feminist approach when composing multimodal projects, meaning we will have increased attention to issues of ethics and accessibility in product design.
