The aim of this workshop is to examine the complexities, affinities, and politics of care in technoscience research.  Feminist technoscience scholars have always been unabashedly vocal about what it is they care about in technoscientific cultures. And yet, care has historically been stigmatized as feminized labour. Recuperating care and its associated affects, we aim to turn care into an effective means for political engagement.  Invited workshop participants include both established and emerging scholars in feminist technoscience studies. The questions we place at the centre of this workshop are “what do we care about?” and “how can we actualize a feminist politics of care?” Through this inquiry we hope to imagine futures for feminist scholarship that can foreground our entanglements in technoscience.
