Abstract

This chapter examines three widespread methods found among applied approaches to feminist epistemology and the study of epistemic injustice. These methods each provide distinct means through which epistemologists have been able to develop novel demonstrations and examples that contribute to the study of how knowledge acquisition, truth, authority, belief, justification, credibility, and meaning are impacted by axes of gender, racial, socioeconomic, and sexual forms of experience and oppression.
