Network Organization

  • Co-founder of the "Berlin Feminist Science Studies Workgroup" (BFSSW) at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin
  • The Berlin Feminist Science Studies Workgroup (BFSSW) was founded in January 2000 at the Max-Planck Institute for the History of Science. The aim was to create a network of scientists from the Max Planck Institute and other Berlin-based institutions or projects working in the field of feminist science studies, but soon the network spread to other towns. Currently the group consists of historians of science, biologists, psychologists, environmental scientists, medical doctors, cultural scientists and philosophers and brings together researchers from different institutional contexts. Research activities have focused on the field of history of medicine, biomedicine, biology, demography, epidemiology, and on related reflections in (feminist) natural science research, (feminist) science studies, post-colonial studies and cultural studies. The broad interdisciplinary composition of the group is reflected in a wide range of methods, theories and practice experiences from humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and medical science.
