Abstract Title: Queering methodologies in physics education research
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: Queer theory in STEM education research is often used as a synonym for studying LGBT+ students or queer issues. However, queer theory and queer methods can be applied to discipline-based education research far more broadly. In this paper I introduce a unique perspective on "queering" quantitative and qualitative research methods and highlight some of the ways these methods are already compatible with the goals of physics education research. This will include discussions of deconstructing binaries, empowering participants in the research process, and reimagining study design to attain novel insights about the experiences of physicists.
