Karen Barad, Myra Hird and Elizabeth Wilson Visit Warwick

With the support of IAS, Karen Barad, Myra Hird and Elizabeth Wilson will visit Warwick. Each of these scholars have considerable reputations in the field of interdisciplinary science studies. In their distinctive ways, Professors Barad, Hird and Wilson are providing new theoretical approaches which have their roots in feminism and which challenge conventional wisdoms of ontology and epistemology in the study of the social and natural through which they draw upon, inter alia, quantum physics, bacteria and artificial intelligence. Their visit will be of particular relevance to colleagues in psychology, sociology, politics, education, history, health and medicine, philosophy and gender studies.

All are welcome
