A significant change is occurring in the biological sciences with implications for feminist identity politics. This illustrated presentation examines cutting edge developments from pioneering
laboratories and invites the audience to engage with the notion that Bio-Feminism is set to play a pioneering role in the science of the third millennium. Modern science rests upon philosophical pillars that originate from 19th Century principles of logical analysis, reductionism and machines, particularly with respect to the organism. Feminist writers such as Evelyn Fox Keller and Donna Haraway, both of whom were trained biologists, have raised objection to this hierarchical,
traditional view of science and made provocations for change towards a more inclusive feminist model of science whose organizational agenda is ‘cyborg’.
