Systematically Consider Gender Research in Technology Development
Numerous case studies in recent decades have demonstrated how gender studies in technology development contribute to non-discriminatory, socially just and socially necessary technical products. This presentation focuses on the methodological approaches to technology development based on these results and discusses the challenge of bringing these results together systematically and interdisciplinarily with engineering research, development and teaching.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Corinna Bath is Maria-Goeppert-Mayer-Professor for Gender, Engineering and Mobility at the TU Braunschweig and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences. She is spokesperson of the interdisciplinary, cross-university doctoral program “Configurations of Man, Machine and Gender (KoMMa.G).” Her research focuses on gender studies in mechanical engineering and computer science, science and technology studies (STS), just and ethical design of technologies, feminist theory and epistemology, and inter- and transdisciplinarity.
