. Questions for weekly discussions and conversations (not part of the required Discussion Board assignment)

These questions can serve as the starting point for your discussions during the week. They are “thought starters,” so that you can explore some ideas associated with the discussion board and unit topics. Answers are not required, and should not be submitted with your required assignment. Answers are not graded.

  1. Why would researchers want to study violence against women? What would researchers hope to learn from this type of study?
  2. How can our society benefit from a study such as this that examines violence against women? How can the results of this type of study benefit our culture on a large scale?

B. Required Discussion Board assignment.

For this assignment, you will make a 2–3-paragraph posting to the Discussion Board in which you must answer the following questions:

  • What are some potential
     methods of researching violence against women? 
  • Specifically, what are ways in which violence against women could be studied using interpretative and critical frameworks?
  • What would you change and why?
  • What different types of information would you likely obtain using this research process?

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
