Gender and Intersectionality in Science, Technology, and Medicine: Historical Perspectives, University of Granada, Spain, 2–3 June 2023
(In-Person) International Conference of the Commission on Women and Gender of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine
We invite proposals for organized sessions and individual presentations that engage with the theme, “Gender and Intersectionality in Science, Technology, and Medicine: Historical Perspectives.” The conference language is English.
We encourage proposals that interrogate the multi-agent histories of women, gender and sexuality in science, technology and medicine, with particular attention to the roles played by constructions of race/ethnicity, class, and further categories that impacted personal and professional lives in a range of geographical and temporal contexts.
Historiographical traditions in studies of women and gender in science, technology, and medicine have offered frameworks within which analyses of individual careers, networks of people, material objects, and ideas promote a more inclusive history of science, technology, and medicine. Through this conference we seek to ask how the lens of “intersectionality” can further the agenda of inclusivity. We especially encourage proposals that consider institutional and geographical contexts beyond the academies of the North/West, in medical, government, NGO, civic, industrial, and corporate institutions. We encourage analytical approaches that take into consideration the social and cultural situatedness of subjects and bring into focus feminist activism, bodies, emotions, and queer identities, among other themes.
We welcome proposals from doctoral students and early career scholars, within five years of receiving degrees, for whom limited travel funding will be available.
