Description:

Women, Science, and Technology is an ideal reader for courses in feminist science studies. The editors have extensively revised this anthology to reflect the newest trends in the field. The third edition contains emerging work in feminist science studies that focuses on specific scientific and technological research, and calls attention to debates among feminists about how to envision our futures in relation to this research. Women, Science, and Technology continues to make the argument that scientific and technological advances are at once deeply implicated in the rigidity of the sex/gender classification system and necessarily useful to challenging that classification system. In addition, recent trends in theory motivate a rethinking of related systems of domination, including race/ethnicity, class, sexualities, and global relations. This new edition reflects those important developments as integral to feminist science studies while incorporating a global perspective.
