Interruptions: Sciences, Feminisms, Knowledges

April 18-19, 2014, Berkley, California, United States

Conference organization

Feminist Theorists have intervened, interfered, and interrupted the sciences in many ways over the past several decades. On the one hand, new areas and approaches in science have emerged out of these interruptions; for example, in the fields of molecular biology and neuroscience new approaches in the genetics of sex and the understanding of brain activity have come out of introducing sex and gender analysis into scientific research. On the other hand, the sciences have also disrupted, shifted, and changed feminist theories; for example, the nascent field of “feminist materialisms” partially arised out of a re-reading of quantum mechanics.

This conference seeks to explore a broad range of these interruptions in order to think through the kinds of knowledge they produce.
