Abstract and Keywords

This article examines what feminist science studies can offer for ecocriticism. It explains that feminist science studies traces the routes and interconnections between gender, science, technology, and cultural systems. The concepts of material-semiotic immersion and transcorporeality overcome the subject/object divide and highlight the entanglement of human and other agents. The article considers representations of the deep ocean as an alien space or as a genetic resource, and asks whether they act as ‘ecoporn’ or encourage ethical engagement with conservation issues.

Keywords: feminist science studies, ecocriticism, discursive critiques, entanglement, transcorporeality, commodification, ecoporn, deep ocean, Craig Venter
