Interdisciplinary Conference on the Relations of Humans, Machines and Gender
Ort: Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Braunschweig
Beginn: 16.10.2019 13:30
Ende: 19.10.2019 16:30
In numerous fields of science, work, and everyday life, humans and machines have been increasingly entangled, developing an ever-growing toolbox of interactions; and this is happening on a local, regional and global level. These entanglements and interactions are changing the structures and practices of our working lives, and they are modifying the way in which science and technology are organized. Furthermore, the new practices, entanglements, possibilities and restrictions effect far-reaching changes in the lives and identities of human beings, affecting – to name just a few aspects sex, gender, sexual identity, age, skin color, migration, or cultural background . These factors are both modified and modifiers in the ongoing new entanglements between humans and machines.
These questions have been tackled both in their complexity and in single case studies by PhD program “Gendered Configurations of Humans and Machines. Interdisciplinary Analyses of Technology” (in short: KoMMa.G), which is the organizer of the conference: a joined program of Technische Universität Braunschweig, Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and Braunschweig University of Art, sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Culture, Lower Saxony.
