Technofeminism: Women, Science & SF

Science and technology is one of the areas where gender inequality is still very prevalent and the influence of feminism has not been quite reached yet. It is about time to bring feminist visions and values into science and technology especially when the rapid scientific and technological advancement indiscriminately affects our body, daily routine and job, and eventually revolutionizes our lives. The 'Technofeminism: Women, Science & SF' Forum provides participants with the opportunity to reexamine and discuss issues such as the philosophy of science, reproduction technology, SF imagination and workforce issues in the field of science and technology. Featuring in-depth and analytical presentations of experts in the field, as well as a roundtable discussion of female SF authors, this forum will be an exciting platform where intense discussions about scientific technology and futuristic imagination are mixed together.
