Intersectional and feminist perspectives on the networked society

Weizenbaum researchers talk to activists, artists and researchers about the systems of power behind digital technologies. A podcast that gives a voice to previously suppressed perspectives on digitalization.

Systems of oppression are relevant in the development of digital technologies, in their application, and in the research about them. This podcast aims towards hearing the scientific findings, subjective views, and personal experiences of women and gender dissidents who engage with digital technologies. It is hosted by three female, migrant researchers who analyze the social implications of digital technologies at the Weizenbaum Institute.
Each episode focuses on an invited guest, their work, experience, and views on relevant socio-political issues. The interviewees are for example researchers, artists, activists, and journalists. The podcast is a way to listen to voices that are often silenced, and to highlight various forms of oppression, for example sexist, racist, colonial, and other – in order to see technology and society differently.
