A Case Study Using Historical Timelines: Developing a Research Methodology for a Study of Policing Women’s Bodies
This SAGE case study details the way in which I developed my research for my journal article entitled Policing Women’s Bodies in an Illiberal Society: the case of Ireland. In this SAGE case study, I explain how I carried out the research for this project and how I structured the research. The key issue with this research project was the enormous scope of the study. The policing of women’s bodies is a very broad topic, and this, coupled with the long timeframe of the study, made this project a very big research project. To cope with the scope of the research project, I developed a specific research methodology for the study. This research methodology allowed me (1) to conduct the study I wanted to conduct .
