These are some of the technologies and phenomena I grapple with as a historian of the recent past and feminist technoscience studies scholar. My work focuses on environmental politics, labor, biopolitics, sexed and raced life, calculation, economic practices, reproduction, and technology through feminist transnational, postcolonial, political economic, and queer approaches.
I am a Professor in the History Department and Women and Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, with graduate appointments in Science and Technology Studies at York University and the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at U of T. I have a PhD in the History of Science from Harvard University (1998), and I have a Bachelors degree in Biology and History and Philosophy of Science and Technology from the University of Toronto (1992).
From 1996-2007 I was the editor of RaceSci Website on the History of “Race” in Science, Medicine, and Technology, which is no longer an active project.
