About FEMMSS


The Association for Feminist Epistemologies, Methodologies, Metaphysics, and Science Studies (FEMMSS) is a multidisciplinary organization founded in 2004. Central aims of the organization include the encouragement of networking and collaboration among scholars in diverse fields; the development of analytic and pedagogical skills to aid such interdisciplinary work; the support of women and other underrepresented scholars in the various humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields, and the sharing of strategies for facilitating their success; and the mentoring of junior scholars. FEMMSS focuses particularly on work that examines how issues of disability, gender, race, socioeconomic status, and other areas of difference shape our understandings of the world, including science scholarship, participation, policies, outcomes, and practice. FEMMSS has a strong commitment to work that crosses boundaries among disciplines and between the academy and the public.
