i am moving this discussion over to the yasmin discussion list so
please reply there !!
greetings- your comment about the gender balance in this exhibition
( 3/24) is part of a much larger problem
i found this statistic on the web
In 2010, women received on average about 14 percent of computer
science undergraduate degrees at major research universities, and that
number has not changed much since then. (huffington post)
In our own university i think its 17% but in our Art and Technology
program we are 40% 60%
it is ironic since so many of the pioneers in art and technology were
women ( see Judy Malloy's book
Women Art and Technology
the sociological filtering begins in primary and secondary school and
the fact that existing
approaches have failed to attract women into careers involving
and math (STEM) is one of the motivations for the STEM to STEAM
movement or integrating the arts and
design into the teaching of engineering and science
I dont know the statistics on gender of the curators in the art
science and technology field-
the leonardo book on rethinking curation is by Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook
they run the excellent new media curating list
there is a discussion in america about how to include coding into the
teaching in elementary and
secondary schools- after all teenagers are now developing phone apps-
is programming now
as fundamental as writing ? my computer science colleague paul
fishwick feels that coding is not the fundamental
skill-maybe he will chime in to this discussion- but rather that
conceptual skills like modelling are more important
in our university the women computer scientists are mobilising through
the new lean-in movement

this effort might like to comment
thanks for your observation !
