The Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR) is seeking a consultant to help design a quality stand-alone Gendering Social Science Research Methods module that can become a core foundational module.
PASGR is a pan-African organisation established in 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya with a vision to promote a vibrant African social science community that addresses key governance and public policy issues on the continent. PASGR pursues its vision through three core programmes: Higher Education, Professional Development and Training, and Research.
PASGR wishes to develop a three-day module on ‘Gendering Social Science Research Methods’. The module is to be delivered primarily to researchers, policy actors, academics, and graduate students. It should interrogate macro and micro power structures from a gender and intersectional perspective, and provide participants with the basic tools to critically incorporate these approaches in their own social science research and policy work.
PASGR are inviting researchers and educators with experience in gender studies/gender advocacy and policy to submit proposals. Candidates who have carried out substantive research and published extensively on gender and higher education, governance and politics, political economy, social and economic relations, public policy, health and related themes in Africa are preferred. Experience in the integration of gender in curricula development at the higher education level is desirable.
Proposals in response to this call must be submitted electronically via email to [email protected] and received by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. See the detailed Terms of Reference on PASGR’s website, or download the PDF version here – Terms of Reference for Gender Module
