Course Title TECHNOLOGY AND INEQUALITY
Course Type MONO-DISCIPLINARY COURSE
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 5.0
Course Description What is the social impact of a technology? How is technology tied to gender, race, and disability? What does "structural" or "institutional racism" mean? How does it involve technology? Can/Should technology fix disability, racism, or gender inequality? The objective of this course is to allow Ph.D. students to answer questions like these, by making them aware of unexpected and unwanted social impacts of their work, and technological development in general. Drawing from research in Science and Technology Studies (STS), Feminism, Race Studies, Disability Studies, and Media Studies, the course aims at looking at the social and political dimensions of technology, with particular focus on the multiple forms of inequality that can be embedded in technological devices and infrastructures. The course will explore technology through an intersectional approach, focusing on different social positions (gender, 'race'/ethnicity, disability, global North and South) and their overlapping.
