I am a BMC math major in the AB/MA program. I am taking this class because I have a lot of unresolved thoughts from last semester’s intro to critical fem studies. I feel like I have critically thought the subject of gender into the ground and want to do some constructive thinking about gender. At this point I think that gender is societally constructed and yet, despite being ‘simply’ constructed, can have profound impacts on an individual’s life. Also, I am still not sure what constructive thinking would even ‘look’ like. As someone who is interested both in programming and in feminism, I think this course has the potential to shape my ideas about the intersection of the two. As for the technology – I am interested in what possibilities or limitations it offers (or not) to people, esp in terms of gender.
