In a new book published by Palgrave Macmillan, editors by Robyn Bluhm, Anne Jaap Jacobson, and Heidi Lene Maibom seek to "bring a critical feminist perspective to the recent brain sciences." In "Neurofeminism: Issues at the Intersection of Feminist Theory and Cognitive Science", a diverse group of academics take note of how our preconceptions of sex and gender reveal themselves in what many believe to be an objective discipline: the natural sciences. For example, one essay that stood out to me is titled "Re-Queering the Brain" (by Isabelle Dussauge and Anelis Kaiser), which questions how we gender the brain when it comes to generating research questions. Is it accurate to say that one can study a male brain versus a female brain? It's a truism in gender and sexuality studies that there is more variation with intense sexes than there are between them - should the categorization in modern neuroscience be thrown out? The authors would argue yes since such binaries have led scientists to emphasize the DIFFERENCES between the sexes rather than the many similarities. Why do we insist that there is a male brain and a female brain when there are just ... brains? Every brain is different and needs to be taken in its own terms - neuroscience should reflect this fact. Doing this would, I believe, immensely benefit neurolaw since we cannot study the Brain on Trial until we also study HOW we study said brain. I apologize for this post being short, but I will be meeting with one of the editors of this book, Anne Jaap Jacobson, this upcoming week and am hoping the conversation will provide me with more material for the next few weeks.
