Humans, Machines and Gender
Date and time
Wednesday – Saturday, 16 – 19 October 2019
HBK Braunschweig, Aula
In numerous fields of science, work, and everyday life, humans and machines have become 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 organised. These factors are both modified and modifiers in the ongoing new entanglements between humans and machines.
After almost three years of individual and collaborative interdisciplinary research, the organisers now want to bring their own perspectives and (preliminary) results into resonance with related research on an international level. This conference aims at bringing together international researchers working on topics in the fields of engineering, technology, humanities, and the social and natural sciences, who are interested in reflecting on interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity, on science and technology studies, as well as gender, feminist, queer, intersectional, and postcolonial studies.
