W21’s 2020/2021 focus theme is Dis/embodiment.
The speakers will be asked three questions:
- Does AI Need a Body?
- “How do gender and dis/embodiment play out in the spaces you inhabit? In your work? Is it possible, and if so how, to define what it means to be a ‘woman’ in the 21st Century?
- What would you say to future generations of women?
