Deboleena Roy, Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, Emory University

Molecular Feminisms and Biophilosophies of Becoming

Should feminists clone? What do neurons think about? How can we learn from bacterial writing? These provocative questions have haunted neuroscientist and molecular biologist Deboleena Roy since her early days when conducting experiments on an in vitro cell line using molecular biology techniques. A natural scientist and feminist theorist, Roy takes seriously the expressive capabilities of and kinships formed between biological “objects,” such as bacteria and other human, nonhuman, organic, and inorganic actants, as ways to better understand processes of becoming.
