Loren Britton and Goda Klumbyte to present at the 'Interdisciplinary Conference on the Relations of Humans, Machines & Gender'

The conference will take place in Braunschweig, Germany, on October 16-19, 2019.

There is growing interaction of humans and machines in numerous fields of science, work, and everyday life – a phenomenon which is not restricted to specific countries but can be observed globally. This interaction changes the way our working life is structured and how science and technology are organized. And what about the human individual? What role does, for example, sex, gender, sexual identity, age, skin color, migration, or cultural background play?

This interdisciplinary conference is organized by the PhD program “Gendered Configurations of Humans and Machines. Interdisciplinary Analyses of Technology” (in short: KoMMa.G; a joined program of Technische Universität Braunschweig, Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and Braunschweig University of Art.

The conference aims at bringing together international researchers working on subjects in the fields of engineering, technology, humanities, and the social and natural sciences, who are interested in reflecting on interdisciplinarity/multidisciplinarity, on science and technology studies, as well as gender, feminist, queer, intersectional, and postcolonial studies.

Loren Britton and Goda Klumbyte will present a paper co-authored with Claude Draude "From 'Case Studies' to 'Concern Studies': Lessons from Bringing Together Arts Practice, New Materialism and Computing".
