Reading Group on STS, Feminism, Queer Theory and New Materialism - 'TBD'
TBD is an interdisciplinary reading group on the intersections between science and technology studies (STS), feminism, queer studies, posthumanism and new materialism. TBD will engage with works - both contemporary and otherwise - that deal with the relationships between technology, sexuality and culture. What kind of technological imaginaries are presented by works stemming from feminist and queer perspectives? How do technological developments in turn affect the way gender, sexuality and materiality are conceptualized? What kind of theoretical and methodological tools are needed to account for the relations between contemporary subjects and their techno-environments?
The group is organised as part of the research lab activities of the Gender/Diversity in Informatics Systems research group (ITeG, Faculty 16) and Soziologie der Diversität (Faculty 05), and will take place at the research lab premises in Kassel. Those interested in joining please email Jennifer Stoll and Goda Klumbytė.
