Venue: University of Bergen, Norway
Accreditation: 3 / 5 ECTS
Feminist Thinking about Technological Development
What are the consequences of current technological development for feminist thinking about equality, freedom and change? Are algorithms gendered, and does it matter? What does sex and subjectivity mean in the age of neuro-technologies and AI? Are we at all still "human"? Is there a specific ethics of the posthuman?
These are some of the questions that will be scrutinized during the three-days course in September 2020. The theme of the course are divided into the following topics:
* The Biased Face of Technology
* Ethics and the Posthuman
* Bodies and Brains If you are working with these or related questions, or are simply interested to learn more, join us for a PhD course in Bergen.
