This paper seeks to explore the concept of «intersectionality» through suggestions taken from the interdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies. We explore three exemplary stories of Italian women engaged in science and technology through the categories of «space», «knowledge», «practice», and «objects». In doing so, we introduce a connection between STS and recent contributions within the debate on intersectionality in order to shed light on sociomaterial issues which have been a neglected aspect of intersectional analysis. We suggest that a similar analysis brings the debate on intersectionality beyond a "human-centered" view towards a "post-humanist" perspective.
