Next Offered: 2016-2017

This course analyzes how technology helps to create disparities of race, sex, and gender in non-industrialized and non-mechanized forms of labor, such as: care work, domestic labor, sex work, and surrogacy. We will study historically the role of science in establishing the categories of race and sex.  Students will be invited to consider how technology currently plays a role in maintaining racial, sexed, and gendered hierarchies, especially within the context of global labor markets.
