Re-configuring computing through cyberfeminism and new materialism (CF+)
Lab Meeting #1: Cyberfeminist legacies, technofeminist trajectories,
computational practices: where are we today?
DATE: November 8, 2018
TIME: 14:00 – 17:00
LOCATION: Research Center for Information System Design (ITeG), University of
Kassel, Pfannkuchstraße 1, Kassel
We kindly invite you to take part in the first lab meeting of the project
“Re-configuring computing through cyberfeminism and new materialism” (CF+)
that will take place on November 8th, 2018, in Kassel. CF+ is a project of the
Gender/Diversity in Informatics Systems research lab at the University of
Kassel, Germany. The project aims to lay the groundwork for revisiting
dominant modes and practices of knowledge and artefact production in computer
science through cyberfeminist and feminist new materialist lenses. It also
aims to consolidate a network of researchers, artists and designers working on
and interested in these issues for on-going collaboration.
This first meeting is dedicated to exploring cyberfeminist legacies and
technofeminist as well as computational practices today. The lab meeting will
start with a contribution by conceptual artist, interdisciplinary researcher
and educator Cornelia Sollfrank. She was founding member of the collectives
frauen-und-technik (Women and Technology, 1992) and -Innen (1994) and
initiated and ran the world-wide cyberfeminist network Old Boys Network
(1997-2001), including the co-organisation of three international conferences
on Cyberfeminism (1997, 1999, and 2001).
The second part of the meeting will take form of an in-depth workshop the goal
of which will be to share ideas and flesh out critical questions for further
investigation and lay grounds for the network consolidation.
The first part of the lab meeting with contribution by C. Sollfrank is open to
anyone but we kindly ask you to register to attend by emailing If you wish to take part in the full event, i.e.
including the in-depth workshop, as well further activities of network
building and consolidation, please apply by also sending your biographical
note and a brief statement of interest by October 26th, 2018. For more
information about the event, please see the attached flyer.
We look forward to seeing you at the Lab!
