The machine is not the woman: cyberfeminism and the techno-determinism of information systems

Author(s)

Arnold, Josie

Abstract

This essay seeks to practise a non-linear non-scientific performace of knowledge and/as ideas. In doing so it challenges the linearity of much that is accorded traditional 'research' status and highlights the enculturisation of knowledge from the perspectives of a dominant masculinist tradition.
