“This is a wonderful cross-selection of the most recent work on one of the central concept in feminist theory, that of mattering. Matter and its processes of self-generation, whether physical, biological, or social, are explored here from a variety of feminist scientific, technological, political and philosophical perspectives with great originality and insight. A powerful addition to the growing conversation on bodies, matter, and new materialisms.”
—Elizabeth Grosz, author of Volatile Bodies: Toward a Corporeal Feminism
“The passionate commitment of feminist scholars to rethinking the material world, and to questioning the assumptions behind this grand project, is evident in this skillfully curated collection.”
—Sari van Anders, Associate Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan
“For those committed to new feminist materialism, for those who are ambivalent about the appellation, and for those encountering this scholarship for the first time, Mattering: Feminism, Science, and Materialism helps us to imagine different strategies to account for power and matter – strategies that we can take up and transfigure in our own attempts to express the complexities of technoscientific worlds we study and inhabit.”
—New Genetics and Society
