Colloquium On Gender And Computing Is Featured In The Daily Texan
Nathan Ensmenger's recent research colloquium entitled, "A Gendered History of the Computer Revolution" was recently featured in the Daily Texan. In his talk, Dr. Ensmenger argued that the professionalization of computing work brought with it a shift away from a once "inherently feminized" occupation to a profession with "an almost stereotypically masculine identity." Ensmenger explored these shifting dynamics in computing culture by identifying several key developments in labor and social history that drove them.
