Feminist Technoscience Studies Summer School: ‘Care Matters’

May 24 2016 to May 27 2016 | Lancaster, UK

Deadline for Applications: Friday 29 April 2016

The Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies at Lancaster University, UK is pleased to announce its 5th annual Summer School in Feminist Technoscience Studies. This year our theme is ‘Care Matters.’ In cooperation with Lancaster’s Centre for Science Studies and the University of Manchester Sexuality Summer School on ‘Love’, we will explore feminist science and technology studies across a range of topics related to matters of care. Delivered as a 4 day intensive summer school, this course includes a mixture of interactive workshops, lectures, film screenings and excursions.

We will explore the ways in whichfeminists have engaged with questions of care, love, and the materialities of bodies and technologies. What counts as care? Do we have obligations to care for and about people, things and worlds? How do we research and do politics around practices of care and lack of caring? The course is delivered by a group of tutors and guest lecturers and will involve shared sessions with students from Manchester University’s Sexuality Summer School.
