Making the Borders Thin: Reflections on Becoming a Researcher

  • Elaine Power University of Toronto
Keywords: Enlightenment, Potmodernism, Epistemology

Abstract

Feminists have effectively challenged the dominant Enlightenment epistemology by demonstrating that knowledge and power are always intimately connected, and that Enlightenment claims to truth have excluded other knowledge claims. Feminist empiricism, standpoint, and postmodernist epistemologies are explored for their contributions to the development of my own epistemological position.
