The Good Robot banner

Join Dr Eleanor Drage and Dr Kerry Mackereth as they ask the experts: What is good technology? Is it even possible? And how can feminism help us work towards it? 

We use the concept of the 'Good Robot' as a provocation for thinking about whether 'good' technology is even possible (and whose idea of 'good' prevails in dominant frames of thinking about technology), but also as a route for guests to imagine different ways of doing or making technology. We approach the concept of feminism broadly and encourage guests to explore what they understand feminism and feminist practices to be. Some of our previous guests have included Wendy Chun, Jason Edward Lewis, Rosi Braidotti, Jack Halberstam, Anne Anlin Cheng, and N. Katherine Hayles. 

Listen now on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts!
