Lab Meeting #4: "Pulling the strings together: techno-politics, practices and
strategies at the intersection of computing/theory/arts"
Part of the project CF+: Reconfiguring Computing Through Cyberfeminism and New
MaterialismEvent date: 29 April 2019Time: 12:00 - 17:00Location: Research
Center for Information System Design (ITeG), Pfannkuchstr. 1, 34121
KasselOrganisers: Gender/Diversity in Informatics Systems, University of
KasselMore info: This last Lab Meeting of CF+
project will bring the three intersecting strands together:
cyber/techno-feminism, new materialism and computing. Participants will be
invited to think together: what is at stake in contemporary computing in the
way it re/figures materiality (of bodies, subjects-users, objects)? What are
the urgencies in the technopolitics of computing as it meets feminism and
arts? What are the blindspots of critical theories that we have at our
disposal when it comes to accounting for these urgencies and generating
alternatives? The Lab Meeting will be structured around three presentations
from guest contributors:Sandra Buchmüller (TU Braunschweig): "Feminist
Design Research in the light of cyber-/techno-feminism and feminist new
materialism"Isabel Paehr (Artist, Berlin): "Developing speculative game
mechanics"Pat Treusch (TU Berlin): "Knitting together/Living together: On
human-robot collaboration through craft"
About CF+ 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. More here: RegistrationIf you

CF+ network of scholars, artists and designers interested in the intersection
between computer science and feminist theory, please also send a link to your
