Refracting bodies through technology

Technologies refract discourses. They articulate silent understandings, highlight cultural values, emphasize subtle ideas. Studying technological artefacts can help trace the discursive contours within which we live.

 

And give us words to challenge them.

 

I research medical technologies and material discursive practices of the body. Employing theoretical tools from feminist science studies, I find my academic home at the juncture of STS and medical sociology. I work with fantastic colleagues at Technology and Social Change, Linköping University, in a research seminar group called Bodies, Knowledge and Subjectivity. Feel free to check out my publications here or contact me by post or email.
