Abstract: Starting with the assumption that technologies are
never gender neutral, neither in their design nor in their
use, the talk explores the co-construction of gender and
technology in critical theories and technological practices
alike. Drawing on feminist Science and Technology Studies (STS)
and feminist media studies, we discuss critical
perspectives on connections between gender and technology.
