title Cyborg Sessions - A Case Study for Gender Equity in Technology
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 71-80
summary This paper discusses the ongoing lack of gender equity in architecture - specifically the shortfall of women in design technology - and presents a robotics workshop in the United States as a case study and method to challenge this inequality. The goals of this paper are to 1.) define a research agenda for documenting and understanding gender equity in design technology and 2.) to offer evidence-based strategies from STEM education and this architecture case study for improving the representation of women in this field.

title Computational Feminism: Searching for Cyborgs
source ACADIA 2017: DISCIPLINES & DISRUPTION [Proceedings of the 37th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-96506-1] Cambridge, MA 2-4 November, 2017), pp. 232-237
summary As computational design matures, the discipline is in a position to address an increasing number of cultural dimensions: social, political, and ethical. This paper examines the gender gap in computational design and proposes an agenda to achieve gender equality. Data from architectural publications and the CumInCAD database provide metrics for measuring the segregation between feminist and computational discourse. Examples of feminist theory establish possible entry points within computational design to bridge the gaps in gender equity and representation. Specifically, the authors re-examine 1990s networked feminism in relation to the computational culture of today. The paper concludes with a proposed definition of Computational Feminism as a social, political, and ethical discourse. This definition appropriates Donna Haraway’s cyborg as its symbolic instrument of equality.
