A key theme of feminist science studies theorists is the question of whose interests are served by the knowledge that mainstream science deems worthy of development, and whose interests are served by the knowledge projects that are overlooked or ignored. A central concern animating this analysis is thus whether we have the knowledge we need to ensure climate justice. The aim of this essay is to catalyze a new climate change research agenda designed to locate epistemic gaps and injustices, to reveal the circulations of power regarding what is known and what remains unknown, to render transparent the ways in which knowledge is framed, and to examine whose interests are served by our current knowledges and ignorances about anthropogenic climate change. My analysis includes not only scientific approaches to climate change, but also the gendering of knowledges and ignorances in the work of theorists studying the topic of gender and climate change.
