    Sinopsis de: "Engaging with Carol Bacchi"

    Carol Bacchi’s scholarship is both substantial and wide-ranging. Beginning her academic career as a historian in the field of English-Canadian women’s suffrage, Bacchi has made innovative and insightful contributions to the fields of feminist theory, critical policy studies, and post-structuralist theory. One of the characteristic traits of her scholarship is her interest in revising and revisiting analytic problems from a range of perspectives...This resolute analytical rigour is undoubtedly evident in Bacchi’s ‘What’s the Problem Represented to be?’ (‘WPR’) approach, which is perhaps her most crucial contribution to intellectual inquiry and certainly one of the most innovative analytical frameworks developed in recent times...This book illuminates, commemorates, and builds upon Bacchi’s ‘WPR’ approach. It outlines the trajectory of the development of the ‘WPR’ approach from Bacchi’s early engagements with feminist thinking, as an academic in scholarly environments which were often the preserve of men, towards the theoretical sophistication of an approach which requires an ongoing critical assessment of assumptions about the social world, social ‘problems’, policy agendas deemed to respond to those ‘problems’, and the researcher’s positioning.This book arose out of a conference organised by the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender at The University of Adelaide honouring Carol Bacchi’s work and is intended to make that work accessible to a range of audiences.- from the Introduction, by Angeliques Bletsas and Chris Beasley
