Module overview

In this module, we will investigate and reflect on the various entanglements between Queerness and digital technologies. Drawing from foundational concepts in Queer theory and gender studies scholarship, this module deconstructs and reconceptualises dominant narratives of the digital. Using case studies and practical work, we will learn about the histories of computing form Queer perspectives, critique discourses of inclusion using Queer theories, and reflect on the ways networked technologies have the potential to transform understandings of gender, sex, and sexuality.
