Title: Katrina Hutchison (Macquarie)
Knowledge, professional skills and epistemic injustice: reflections on the  
case of surgery Dr Katrina Hutchison (Macquarie) Theories of  
epistemic injustice have potential to illuminate a variety of real-world  
situations where harm results from misjudging the credibility of a knower.  
One such context is the workplace. In this talk I explore the relevance of  
epistemic injustice to women surgeons’ experiences of work, drawing on data  
from an empirical interview study. I argue that epistemic injustice  
understood narrowly (as Miranda Fricker has described it, focusing on  
testimonial and hermeneutical injustice) is only applicable to a fraction  
of the wrongs experienced by women surgeons in their capacity as knowers.  
In surgery, credibility tracks the skilled performance of the worker:  
arguably the knowledge that matters most to patients (and employers such as  
hospitals) is not the surgeon’s propositional knowledge, but their ability  
to enact knowledge of disease and anatomy through the successful hands-on  
performance of an operation. Successful performance of surgery moreover  
requires successful interactions with skilled colleagues (e.g.  
anaesthetists, nurses and technicians), while successful care of patients  
requires interpersonal and communication skills. The practice of surgery,  
then, defies simple analysis in terms of knowledge and credibility. I use  
the case to illuminate both strengths and limitations of the theoretical  
lens of epistemic injustice in applied contexts.---------------Hi there,
