Title Feminist Commons and Techno-Scientific Futures
 
Creator Appleton, Nayantara Sheoran
 
Description There have been sustained conversations within eco-feminism and feminist materialism about the way reproduction, ecologies, and everyday life for women is rendered visible and important within the commons. However, there has been a lack of engaged discussion on how techno-scientific spaces (re)imagined in feminist commons is another way to articulate futures that disassemble hierarchies and exploitative everyday existence. In this short provocation, I posit two ideas vis-à-vis science in feminist commons. First, that feminist attention to embodied medico-scientific inequalities has changed science and scientific knowledge, not just the spaces where science happens. Second, that the feminist scientific futures are spaces full of possibilities that can emerge from feminist ‘situated knowledges.’ This analysis emerges from the urgency to reclaim techno-science from partisan politics, neoliberal economics, and exploitative everyday practice. It also hopes to serve as a generative discussion about the value of a feminist commons for any commoning project.
