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.
