Gender, Technology, and Culture, Post-graduate level, 7,5 credits, IT0937F

In this course the students will explore the relationship between technology development and design, information systems, and society in the context of gender studies, intersectional research, and feminist theory. Such approaches include perspectives from Feminist Science and Technology Studies (STS) and within Feminist Technoscience, as well as in other critical perspectives for inclusive design in technology, media and engineering disciplines.

Students will explore the ways in which gender and technology are co-constructed within complex social systems (educational, cultural, industry) and investigate how this may influence the design and implementation of new technologies and related discourses. Intersectional issues (race, class, ability, nationality) will also be examined, and students will draw on contemporary and historical perspectives to develop their analytical skills and deepen their awareness of inclusive development and design practices in socio-cultural contexts.
