Gendering Epistemologies

Gender and Situated Knowledge: Perspectives from Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe

Conference

Prague and Liblice 13 – 15 October 2022

Gendering Epistemologies – Gender and Situated Knowledge: Perspectives from Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe

More than 30 years ago, Donna Haraway published her iconic essay “Situated
Knowledge. The Science Question in Feminism and the Privilege of Partial Perspective”, where she discusses the issue of objectivity in feminism. She understands “objective knowledge” as bound to a specific historical point in time and space – precisely as “situated knowledge”. We seek to reflect its current pertinence, considering the differentiation of gender related debates from feminism to queer theories, to trans activism and beyond, but also in the face of current social challenges like hate speech and fake news, conspiracy theories and public questioning of established scientific values. Thus, the conference “Gendering Epistemologies” looks at how gender-shaped (especially scientific) knowledge and truth claims are tied to gender (politics) in Central, Eastern and South- Eastern Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Concept and Organization
PECEE

The research initiative Political Epistemologies of Central and Eastern Europe (PECEE) investigates modes of (self-)reflexivity in the history of the sciences and the humanities. Eastern, Central, and South-Eastern Europe have served as starting points to gain a perspective on the interconnectedness of historical theories, practices and figures of knowledge production – “epistemologies” – within their political environments. Thus, we aim to strengthen research in Historical Epistemology with a special focus on political implications, to radically situate historical theories of knowledge.
