Interrogating gender issues in STS since April 2014. 


The FemSTS Reading Group was launched in April 2014 by Raquel Velho, and it is now organised by Hattie Lloyd. It meets once a month to discuss articles that address issues of gender in science and technology studies. Our aim is to think about the intersections of STS/HPS and feminism as critical disciplines. We are a lively bunch, and meetings are informal – academic staff, graduate students, and all other interested parties are welcome to join!

We have read on various topics about women in science and in our own field, and accompany main readings with articles and blog posts on more general feminist issues including, but not limited to, its history. Our group has recently read selected chapters from Feminism in Twentieth-Century Science, Technology, and Medicine, edited by Angela N. H. Creager, Elizabeth Lunbeck and Londa Schiebinger. 

We meet on the first Thursday of each month, 1-2pm. All future dates and readings are online on the FemSTS Moodle. Please email the organiser, Hattie Lloyd (harriet.lloyd.12[at]ucl.ac.uk), for further details and to be added to the mailing list.

We look forward to meeting you!
