Feminist Philosophies of E-Cognition

This is a collection of works that incorporate feminist theory and e-approaches to cognition (broadly understood as enactive, extended, embodied, extended, and/or ecological). The label is my own and is meant only to collect this literature in the tradition of other feminist philosophies of particular sciences; it does not imply a certain type of approach, methodology, or shared commitments amongst authors.

Please email me with any additions to the list (with citation or doi included). Note that I only check the reference list to make sure that both e-cognition and feminist theory are represented.
