Length: see description below. References are not included.



i) Give a short summary of your project description (ca. 800-1000 characters, including spaces)


ii) Then briefly reflect on the process so far.  To which extent has your own understanding of knowledge production and/or the usefulness of theoretical perspectives developed? What do you see as the most important challenges at this point? (ca. 2300 characters, not including spaces)


iii) Discuss in which ways your project description would change if you used an alternative methodology or theoretical perspective. What are the implications for the thesis statement, the object of study, the understanding of gender and ethical perspectives? Which challenges are solved and which are created through this alternative approach? What perspectives would such a different methodology or theoretical perspective enable and what might it conceal?  (ca. 6-8 pages, 2300 characters per page, not including spaces).
