Title Gendering welfare technology
Abstract Dyb’s seminar will be on how a “technology reducing” meaning of welfare technology are created in Norwegian policy documents. Inspired by Foucault, Corneliussen and Dyb have explored the meaning construction of a “technology-reducing” claim stating that «welfare technology is not about technology, but about human beings». The seminar will illuminate how “technology-reducing” claims have gained widespread acceptance and discuss some of the effects this type of policy statements has for the user of welfare technology, particularly for female health care professionals.
