Mar Hicks (NHC Fellow, 2018–19; Associate Professor of History of Technology, Humanities Department, Illinois Institute of Technology)

May 4, 2023

This webinar looks at how the history of computing is more diverse than many people expect, and why these less-well-known narratives are important to understanding the changes in the field of computing over time, as well as in the present day. Topics that will be addressed include gender, professionalization, race, class, sexuality, meritocracy, and historiography.
