  1. Identity in Transit: Nomads, Cyborgs and Women.Irene Gedalof - 2000 - European Journal of Women's Studies 7 (3):337-354.
    This article explores the problems and possibilities of different feminist theoretical models of identity for challenging women's symbolic and strategic positioning in the discourses and conflicts that produce national, ethnic and racialized community identities. The discussion focuses on two of the most popular alternative models to emerge within white western feminism, the nomad and the cyborg, while also considering some other suggested paradigm shifts emerging from diasporic and postcolonial feminisms. It asks how successfully these feminist alternative models of the self (...)

  • Mechanical Maids and Family Androids: Racialised Post-Care Imaginaries in Humans (2015–), Sleep Dealer (2008) and Her.Kerry Mackereth - 2019 - Feminist Review 123 (1):24-39.
    Feminist investigations into caring technologies emphasise the tension between their reproduction of care’s assumed femininity and their ability to destabilise gendered markers and systems. However, the existing literature ignores the historical racialisation of care and its perpetuation in the form of the posthuman caring object. This article examines how racialised relations of power shape the posthumanisation of care in three science-fiction works, Channel 4’s television show Humans, Alex Riviera’s film Sleep Dealer and Spike Jonze’s film Her. While Her’s disembodied operating (...)

  • Drones, Swarms and Becoming-Insect: Feminist Utopias and Posthuman Politics.Lauren Wilcox - 2017 - Feminist Review 116 (1):25-45.
    Insects and ‘the swarm’ as metaphors and objects of research have inspired works in the genres of science fiction and horror; social and political theorists; and the development of war-fighting technologies such as ‘drone swarms’, which function as robot/insect hybrids. Contemporary developments suggest that the future of warfare will not be ‘robots’ as technological, individualised substitutions for idealised warfighters, but warfighters understood as swarms: insect metaphors for non-centrally organised problem-solvers that will become technologies of racialisation. As such, contemporary feminist analysis (...)

  • Helen A'Loy and Other Tales of Female Automata: A Gendered Reading of the Narratives of Hopes and Fears of Intelligent Machines and Artificial Intelligence.Rachel Adams - 2020 - AI and Society 35 (3):569-579.
    The imaginative context in which artificial intelligence is embedded remains a crucial touchstone from which to understand and critique both the histories and prospective futures of an AI-driven world. A recent article from Cave and Dihal sets out a narrative schema of four hopes and four corresponding fears associated with intelligent machines and AI. This article seeks to respond to the work of Cave and Dihal by presenting a gendered reading of this schema of hopes and fears. I offer a (...)

  • Gender Issues in Information and Communication Technologies.Wieslaw Oleksy, Edyta Just & Kaja Zapedowska‐Kling - 2012 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 10 (2):107-120.
    The purpose of this paper is to present some of the findings (which were reported on more extensively in earlier work) regarding the visibility of gender issues in the literature on selected information and communication technologies (ICTs) with a view to make predictions about potential ethical issues that the application of these ICTs may bring about in the future. On the basis of the analysis of around 100 published sources, which dealt with various aspects of selected ICTs, conclusions have been (...)
