Localizing feminist new materialisms

Localizing Feminist New Materialisms is a research project funded by the Academy of Finland (2017‒2021, no. 309007). The project expands feminist new materialisms through three key aims revolving round localization. First, it highlights the role of research methodologies, especially fieldwork methods, in new materialisms. Second, it brings a range of previously less noted topics into feminist new materialisms: children’s cultures, disability studies, performing arts, and sound. Third, the project advocates the localization of new materialisms within contemporary humanities. This is crucial both for assessing the theoretical and political relevance of these approaches, and for helping humanistic research grapple with today’s realities.
