Third Quarter feedback
1.) What connections have you seen among all the imaginative representations of gender and technology that we’ve looked at?
I don’t know about connections, but i have found it interesting to look at so many different types of representation of gender and technology. There really is quite a veriaty out there and it is a real testament to the creative capabilities of people. Watchmen is really different then Handmaid’s Tale which is different then Metropolis. I guess one thing that i noticed through out the things we looked at was a sense of people and technology being part of something larger; Metropolis: all the workers and thinkers were needed to keep the city running, Handmaid’s Tale: everyone had a job in the new country, Watchmen: the whole novel is about the human condition and wether the watchmen can control/effect the human condition.
2.) How do these works contribute to your understandings of gender, technology or the relations between them
I think they have added to my understanding of jobs being a type of technology and that jobs are often gendered.
3.) Any other feedback?
I liked the variety of representations that were chosen for this section of the course.
4.) WordPress Functionality?
not bad, i run another blog for a on-campus club so i feel pretty proficient with it. I like that it is easy to learn how to use, but you can do quite a bit. There are limitations, but for the job it fills here, it works quite well.
