In the winter semester 2023/24, the Centre for Gender Studies and the Department of Sociology at Paderborn University are organising a lecture series entitled "Digitality, Diversity, Discrimination" on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 pm. In a total of seven lectures, academics will address questions of the interactions between digitality and society. The lectures will take place digitally via Zoom. All interested parties are cordially invited. Further information and registration options are available on the event website. The lecture series is organised in cooperation with the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Central Equal Opportunities Officer of Paderborn University. On 5 December, Prof. Dr Tobias Matzner from Paderborn University will give a lecture on "Discrimination through AI".
"In an era where digitalisation is advancing at breakneck speed and influencing almost every aspect of our daily lives, it is crucial to understand its profound impact on society", explain Dr Claudia Mahs from the Centre for Gender Studies and Matthias Philipper from the Department of Sociology, organisers of the lecture series.
This is precisely where the lecture series comes in, offering the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the interactions between digitality and society and to explore the challenges, opportunities and limits associated with them. The lecture series places a special emphasis on looking at digitality from a diverse perspective. In our time, social diversity and gender justice are central concerns that take on particular relevance in the digital world. The event series offers space for in-depth discussions on how digital technologies influence existing gender relations and social hierarchies and how we can shape an inclusive and just digital society together.
