Roswitha Hofmann

In this chapter processes of categorization in quantitative research are discussed from a queer theoretical perspective. Bearing in mind that methods are not innocent yet always powerful instruments of biopolitics and governmentality, Hofmann highlight’s the heteronormative framing of ‘sexual identities’ and ‘sexual orientations’. It is the objective of this chapter to reflect on the construction and use of these categories in official statistics and quantitative research by discussing empirical examples and good practices of dealing with social categories. This chapter is an effort to encourage further debates on the empirical use of categories in EDI research and to foster a queer-reflective use.
