Abstract:

  • This panel proposes to demarginalize the role of gender in technology. It aims to create an increased awareness of the intricate relationship of gender issues to the most fundamental understanding of how technology impacts upon our lives.

    Thinking concerning the role gender issues play in technologies is widely diverse. The purpose of this panel is to demarginalize the role of gender in technology by recognizing the diversity of views as a rich environment for understanding seemingly unrelated issues about the role of technology in our lives as artists. An increased awareness of the intricate relationship of gender to the most fundamental understanding of how technology impacts our lives, benefits discussions concerning issues including access, collaboration, differing cultural and ethnic views of technology, reason for advocating artistic use of technology, epistemological and ontological assumptions, as well as ethical implications in the development and use of technology.
