FEMSAG - Feminist Theory After Sex and Gender
A research project on the nature vs. nurture issue in feminist thought, funded by an individual fellowship from the H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions.
This project seeks to develop conceptual tools with which to address nature-nurture issues pivotal to the current philosophy, science and politics of sex and gender. This overall research objective is implemented in and through three individual work packages (WP).
In WP1, the project engages with current efforts in feminist science studies to address biases of sex and gender in contemporary brain research. WP2 contributes to the philosophical debate within so-called 'material feminisms' regarding the more foundational issue of what a feminist construal of the very terms 'nature' and 'nurture' (or 'culture') might look like. Lastly, in WP3, the project aims to add to ongoing conversations on how to open up the phenomenological tradition in European philosophy to the lives and experiences of transgendered people.
