How can feminism, queerness and (post)digital networks be thought together? The podcast (DIS)CONNECTIVITY focuses on the possibilities of a so-called critical connectivity, a form of connectivity that does not merely expand digital infrastructures, but questions them. Agnieszka Roguski talks to Ute Kalender about her work at the FrauenComputerZentrum, the myth of a domination free internet, digital care work and classism within seemingly democratic possibilities of participation.
Ute Kalender is interested in new digital feminisms at the intersection of post-Marxist, queer, disability and transgender studies. With Aljoscha Weskott, she teaches intersectionally on digitalisation – at the art academies in Düsseldorf, Vienna or Munich as well as in Gender Studies at the Freie Universität of Berlin, the University of Vienna, Salzburg, Marburg or Flensburg. She is currently a research associate at the Institute for Social Medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics at Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin in a project on health care for intersexual children and at FrauenComputerZentrumBerlin in the BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung / Federal Ministry of Education) and Research project DAPF (Digitale Akademie Pflege / Digital Academy Care) 4.0 on the digitalisation of care.
