Feminist and Queer Repoliticizations of the Brain

Abstract [en]

The historical relationship between biology and feminist politics is one of proximity and distance, tensions and contradictions. This is particularly obvious in the current golden age of neuroscience, when arguments supporting sexism, the inevitability of the sex/gender difference, the equalization of sexuality with heterosexuality and much more are reformulated based on the findings from brain research. In this paper, we examine the specific entanglements of brain science and feminism and identify three main directions which are “destabilizations”, “reconstructions”, and “recontextualizations”. These encounters provide a structure for our argument and reflect that the interactions between biology, feminist politics and political activism are contentious but sometimes also very productive. We close with some thoughts on the sociological configurations of the political economy of neuroscience for the trans*, intersex and feminist movement.
