Refusal and Repair: Decolonial Technoscience Tactics

Refusal and Repair: Decolonial Technoscience Tactics

This year the McLuhan Centre joins forces with the Technoscience Salon on the theme of Refusal and Repair: Decolonial Feminist Technoscience Tactics.  Our project brings practitioners together to cultivate decolonial feminist technoscientific practices towards creating less violent, more livable, worlds. Over the course of the academic year we will convene conversations and public events, including participation in the McLuhan Centre Monday Night Seminars on such themes as refusal, resistance, resurgence, protocol, sensing, and land-body relations. Our primary goal will be to thicken and support an intersectional and decolonial feminist community  of scholars critically working on questions of technology and science here in Toronto.


Lead Convener: Michelle Murphy  Professor in the History Department and Women and Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, Director of the Technoscience Research Unit, and co-organizer, with Natasha Myers, of the Toronto Technoscience Salon.
