Gender-Technology Relations. Exploring Stability and Change

Lecture by Dr. Hilde G. Corneliussen, associate professor in Digital Culture, University of Bergen, Norway.  In her lecture she will explore the question of stability and change in gender-technology relations in a historical perspective.  Among the examples you will meet cultural discourses warning women against being “sent back to the kitchen sink” unless they develop an interest for computers; recruitment initiatives inviting women to computer science because they are good at communicating with people; female computer experts presented as not-(masculine)-nerds; and computer competent women using femininity to surprise their environments.
