Technology is changing the way humans relate to the world and to each other at an ever-increasing rate. While many of the changes are positive, the infiltration of technology into almost every aspect of human life and the potential for its misuse raise serious questions. An important dimension of such considerations concerns the impact of emerging technologies on feminism.

While the question of feminist technology has been recently raised within the field of technology studies, and feminist philosophers have attended to problems posed by specific technologies, such as reproductive technologies, broader philosophical questions concerning the nature and scope of technology’s challenges for feminism have yet to receive the sustained, critical attention they deserve. In recognition of this gap in the philosophical literature, this conference aims to bring together scholars working in feminist philosophy, philosophy of technology, technoscience, philosophy of mind and epistemology in order to facilitate a new and productive exchange between them.
