ANNOUNCING A NEW BOOK SERIES FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON PRESS
Feminist Technosciences seeks to publish emerging, intersectional, cutting-edge feminist work in science and technology studies. As science and technology move to center stage in contemporary culture and politics, the need for new and multifaceted analyses becomes even more pressing.
Early social and historical studies tracked the ways in which science and technology inscribed and re-inscribed categories such as sex, gender, race, class, nation, and sexuality, demonstrating the centrality of these to the production of scientific theories, cosmologies, artifacts, and knowledge.
Interdisciplinary feminist science studies continues to seek ways to improve science and technology, including addressing the persistent underrepresentation of women and people of color in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. The series will foreground insights from queer studies, critical race studies, disability studies, animal studies, postcolonial theory, and other critical approaches that reframe and reignite longstanding questions in feminist science and technology studies.
