Rezensionen
"A highly informative, thought-provoking and well-structured contribution to the field of Feminist Science and Technology Studies and an inspiration for any student, academic or researcher interested in ways of challenging inequalities of and in science and technology." Marie Larsson, International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology, 8/2 (2016) "Das Buch [ist] aus wissenschaftlicher Perspektive sehr bereichernd, da es einen Einblick in faszinierende Forschungsperspektiven und unterschiedlichste technologische Gebiete ermöglicht. Spannend an und in dem vorliegenden Buch ist die Synthese von radikalem Konstruktivismus und den naturwissenschaftlichen Referenzen des 'New Materialism'. Gerade hier liegt abstraktes und praktisches Potential." Diana Schellenberg, querelles-net, 15/3 (2014) "[Das Buch] bringt die Diskussion um Frauen in Naturwissenschaften und Technik auf den neuesten Stand. Theoretische Zugänge aus den unterschiedlichsten Wissenschaftsbereichen zeichnen ein umfangreiches Bild, das auch bislang unentdeckte Bereiche des Themas auszuleuchten vermag." AVIVA Berlin, 2 (2014) Reviewed in: GMK-Newsletter, 1 (2014) ESNA-Bulletin, 163 (2014), Alice Naomi Rodgers The Quarterly Review of Biology, 91/1 (2016)
