The registrations are now open for the first lab meeting within 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).
