"I've got some news for you / fembots have feelings too" - Robyn, "Fembot"
This talk takes up the figure of the fem(me)bot as a political and embodied position for those of us who identify as feminists and have an intimate--if complex--relationship with technology, from screen media to access aids. The chronic fem(me)bot connects the representation of cyborgs, gynoids, and other feminized robots in popular culture to the materiality and labour underpinning communications technology, as well as the creative and critical practices of crip hacking and accessible design performed by disabled feminists. This lecture also introduces an autoethnographic and creative approach to cripping technologies and futures by imagining technologies differently and reframing our vision for the future around justice, rest, collective care, and interdependence.
Dr. Jerreat-Poole bio:
Adan is a nonbinary and disabled scholar living on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe and Hausendosaunee nations. Their work lies at the intersection of disability justice, digital media, and critical design. They are the 2020-2022 Ethel Louise Armstrong Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Disability Studies at Toronto Metropolitan University. They are a Pisces.
This talk will have ASL interpretation and live captioning. This talk will be recorded.
The Ethel Louise Armstrong Postdoctoral fellowship was established to further the scholarly contributions of gender-marginalized disabled/mad scholars. Today, this includes trans and cisgender women, all trans, nonbinary, and gender fluid people, as well as those whose gender identities fall outside of colonial/eurocentric gender categories (e.g., two-spirit).
