The Symposium Series Presents: Johanna Oksala

7:26 PM


Please join us on Tuesday November 28, from 5:30- 7:30 in the Alumni Reading Room for our next speaker in the Symposium Series! Johanna Oksala will be giving her presentation titled "Feminism Against Bio-capitalism."


Her paper "discusses the growth of bio-capitalism and analyzes its political consequences through the case study of commercial gestational surrogacy." She will touch on works by both Melinda Cooper and Catherine Waldby to form a philosophical framework keen to confront ethical issues surrounding the commercialization of bodies.


Oksala is a Academy of Finland Research fellow in the Department of Philosophy, History, Culture. and Art Studios at university of Helsinki. She is also an associate professor of Environmental Philosophy at Pratt Institute.
