Challenging Canon: The Gender Question in Computer Science

Abstract [en]

The gender question in computer science is often presented as: "Why are there so few women in computer science and what can be done about that?"This question usually focuses on women. Sometimes "men" or "gender" enter the discussions. However, it is not common that the second part of the sentence - computer science - is considered.The papers in this thesis challenge, in different ways, how the gender question is usually perceived and discussed within the community of computer scientists, and where solutions are looked for.The approach taken is to move focus from women/gender to the discipline of computer science itself. This means the question is raised towards a more general level,towards "the science question", discussing the discipline, its paradigms and knowledge processes.Theories and methodologies from gender research, used within computer science, offer new possibilities to develop broader and more complex understandings of "the gender question in computer science".
