Phillips, Debby A. PhD, ARNP

Advances in Nursing Science: June 2001 - Volume 23 - Issue 4 - pp 49-66
Innovative Methodologies

Bridging the gap between the individual and social context, methodology that aims to surface and explore the regulatory function of discourse on subjectivity production moves nursing research beyond the individual level in order to theorize social context and its influence on health and well-being. This article describes the feminist, poststructural, psychoanalytic discourse analysis and multiple methods used in a recent study exploring links between cultural discourses of masculinity, performativity of masculinity, and practices of male violence.
