'50 years of new technologies in healthcare: a feminist critique' by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh

Professor Trisha Greenhalgh (1977) is a medical doctor, Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences, and Director of the Interdisciplinary Research In Health Sciences research group at the University of Oxford. In her lecture she talks about how technologies in healthcare have been theorised. In particular, she shows how the work of scholars—many but by no means all of them women—who have drawn on feminist theories (and the critical social sciences more generally) have built an interdisciplinary field of scholarship that explicitly decentres technologies in favour of a focus on such things as socio-technical systems and the technology-assisted lived body.
