Oakley’s overarching goal is to develop an emancipatory social science, a term she uses to describe social science research that is both democratic and interventionist.
The questions Oakley raises in regard to the relationship between the researcher and the researched, the place of experience and experimentation, the question of whose experience counts most, issues of reliability, validity, and generalizability, and the tension between qualitative and quantitative research(ers) are all familiar to communication researchers.
Oakley illustrates how the history of the past, including associations of social science with Nazi experimentation and vivisection, has generated a resistance to experimental methods that is, for her, unfortunate.

And visually, the Thump glasses were a bit of a fashion risk, a point we won’t rehash much beyond what many people said last year.
