Time Machines & Boundary Objects


Tuesday 4 Dec – Share Feminism/s, how? with whom? with what care? how to use the notion of an epistemological project 
rereading Davis as lens on all the other books 
rereading Zandt as lens on all the other books

What does Zandt have to teach us about the issues raised in the other books that we might have missed if we hadn’t read her work? So how well does Davis’ notion of epistemological project travel? Can we use it to think about these books, ideas, activisms, methods, disciplines, feminisms? 

  1. what would you not have noticed about everything if we had not read Zandt?
  2. what would Zandt say about Berger and Hewitt? what makes you think so?
  3. what would Davis say about Berger and Hewitt? what makes you think so?

  • what is an epistemological project as you understand it now?
  • what is the argument of the class? what makes you think so?
  • what moment during the semester did it all come together for you?
  • how will you demonstrate that you read everything by the last day?


Thursday 6 Dec – Time Machines & Boundary Objects: experiencing what’s alive! 
finishing up and rereading Berger as lens on all the other books
finishing up and rereading Hewitt as lens on all the other books 

How do different feminisms use intersectionality to share their urgent projects and their hopes for feminism? Read stuff you missed or reread the stuff that has become a touchstone for you; be able to say why and how. Why do feminists want to be able to historicize? How is that a kind of sharing? a kind of traveling in space and time?
