The Centre for Gender and Women's Studies at Lancaster University, UK, in
cooperation with the Department of Sociology, Lancaster's Centre for Science
Studies, and the Centre for the Study of Environmental Change is pleased to
announce its annual Summer School in Feminist Technoscience Studies. The theme
is Meeting Frankenstein's Companions. Born at the intersections of the
bicentennial of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's extraordinary science fabulation
on germinations of life, and recent developments in transpecies affiliation,
we will explore feminist science and technology studies across a range of
topics related to matters of encounter, alterity, and more than human

Delivered as a 4 day intensive summer school by a group of tutors and guest
lecturers, this course includes a mixture of interactive workshops, lectures,
film screenings and excursions. We will explore the ways in which feminists
have engaged with questions of life, embodiment, and the Other in imaginaries
and materialisations of technosciences and naturecultures. What counts as life
and whose lives count? What relations of response-ability do we have for the
sociotechnologies that increasingly become us? How do we research and do
politics around practices of normativity and monstrosity, of making and taking

The course is open to graduate/postgraduate taught and research students, and
Register by May 16.
