Write a Critical Article Review for Neuroscience and Feminist Theory: A New Directions Essay

Write a Critical Article Review (minumim 450 words; include at least 2 quotations; quotations do not count towards word count) addressing the following items:

1.Article(s) Summary: A substantial, engaged and accurate summary of the article(s) you have selected. It should highlight the major arguments, themes, concepts, etc. presented by the authors. This part of your critical review essay should be at least 200 words in length.
2.Critical Evaluation: A critical assessment of the article. ‘Critical’ does not necessarily mean negative. It does mean engagement, exploration, and evaluation of the authors’ main argument and supporting evidence. This part of your review should be at least 250 words in length. Consider questions such as:

  • What types of evidence or information do the authors present to support their points? Is this evidence convincing, controversial, factual, one-sided, etc.? How do the authors deal with counter-evidence? (Consider the use of primary historical material, case studies, narratives, recent scientific findings, statistics, etc.)
  • Which parts of the work (particular arguments, descriptions, etc.) are most effective and which parts are least effective? Why?
  • Where do the authors do a good job of conveying evidence? Where do the authors fail to do so? Where is their argument strongest? If solutions to a problem they have identified are offered, are they believable, misguided, or promising?
  • Where (if at all) do the authors make assumptions that are not supported, make illogical connections or present evidence out of its appropriate context? What weaknesses or shortcomings did you identify in the text, if any? Do you have any unresolved questions, concerns, or criticisms?
  • What is most valuable about this article for you as a reader and for others scholars focused on the intersections of gender, race, and culture with scientific, technical, and medical knowledge?
