Hi everybody,

my name is Doris Allhutter and I am very excited about taking part in 
this great conference!
I am a researcher in science and technology studies in Vienna and I am 
interested in how information systems co-emerge with ideologies and 
hegemonies in society and organzations, in the affective, discursive and 
material entanglements of systems and the practices they entail in 
development and use contexts. In doing this, I focus on the 
trans/formation of gender and class relations.
I have published a book on digital pornography (in German 
and have done some experimental art work on the topic too.
Currently, I am researching development practices in the field of 
semantic technologies using concepts of ideology, hegemony, 
performativity and agentive materiality. And part of this I will present 
to you at DL14. I think that from a politically engaged STS perspective 
it makes sense to try a characterisation of such an emerging technology 
that takes the material-discursive conditions of its production into 
account. Therefore, I will sketch a framework for the analysis of 
co-emerging computational and economic practices that grasps the 
entanglement of capitalist structures with ideologically invested 
micro-work practices.

I am really looking forward to meeting you all in November!
