Oldenziel recounts the history of technology -. She was fluent in Czech and Danish, and well-versed in Russian and German. The Netherlands is reputed to be the first Western European country with separate waste collection. The environing technologies that enable such articulation and comprehension hold potential in the future transformation that our societies need to undergo to overcome the crisis of environment and climate. A Reader 2003 ; Crossing Boundaries, Building Bridges 2000 ; Schoon Genoeg 1998 ; Making Technology Masculine: Men, Women and Modern Machines in America, 1870-1945 1999 ; 'Boys and their Toys in America' 1997 ; Gender and the Meanings of Technology: Engineering in the U. On the basis of these, the purpose of this study is to determine the factors that influence the choices of female students in high school as they choose engineering as a profession. According to Oldenziel 1999 , membership standards in engineering excluded women mainly because they were thought incapable of managing men, and the profession has a shared ideology that is not progressive and in line with efforts to secure equality in the workplace.
Although novel, and a powerful icon of the politicized climate of the 1970s, Oldenziel and Veenis argue that the quick success of glass containers cannot be explained in the political context of rising environmentalism alone. In more recent years, however, activists, researchers, and policymakers have increasingly turned to mobilizing older technologies in their pursuit of sustainability. Thanks to the progress made in the investigation of the history of technology in Cieza's city an important cultural, scientific and technological legacy is being recovered which has resulted in several articles in the magazine Andelma, of the Center of Historical Studies Fray Pasqual Salmerón, being the history of technology a fixed section in the magazine since number 8. At some point, start discuss really interesting things: that emotional change in history does not follow societal or political changes a functionalist view , but rather accompanies them in a dialectical way 1515-1516. But in the making of Europe, consumers, tinkerers, and rebels were an unrecognized force - until now.
Chemical engineering, however, served as an interesting case in this study because it was described as gender diverse. The Czech Republic became a second home for Karen. Not politicians or generals but consumers have increasingly shaped the experiences that define what it means to be European. Both Nixon and Khrushchev recognized the political symbolism of the modern kitchen; the kind of technological innovation represented in this everyday context spoke to the political system that produced it. Today's consumers query the environmental impact of their consumption.
Karen was the perfect person to help us include the eastern European experience—and scholars—in the Tensions of Europe Network. The 14 case studies show how each of the urban areas developed its own unique cycling culture. Oldenziel recounts the history of technology - both as intellectual construct and material practice - by analyzing these struggles. Ruth Oldenziel Ruth Oldenziel is professor at Eindhoven University of Technology. Making know-how Masculine: males, girls, and smooth Machines in the United States, 1870-1945 maps the ancient strategy in which males laid claims to know-how as their unique terrain. It was the American Karen Freeze fig.
Based on archival material, the authors analyse the ways that recycling container activism was rooted in the tradition of the culture of thrift. Drawing on a wide diversity of resources, she explains why male machines instead of lady materials became the fashionable markers of expertise. Kline, Cornell University; Jennifer Light, Northwestern University; Rachel P. This relationship is further clarified by the mediating effects of progressive ideas about women in the workplace. Parallel to the expansion of automobility, the country has been unique in its development of innovations in electric-powered two-wheelers and a vibrant e-cycling practice since the 1980s. Certainly inventors, engineers, and politicians played their parts.
Oldenziel vertelt de geschiedenis van de technologie - als intellectuele constructie en als practische toepassing - aan de hand van deze strubbelingen. The material that he received from Stokes a few months later - an immensely rich lode that enhanced the large collection of Muybridge material already in the Smithsonian - would show beyond a doubt that Muybridge was the first man to construct, direct, photograph, and edit the kind of narrative fantasies that are at the core of motion pictures. Technology is here understood broadly as a terraforming practise, materially and conceptually. Findings show that higher scores on prosocial self-schemas result in lower reported binge drinking. We know far less about how key stakeholders, such as faculty, understand gender stratification in engineering education. Their initiative was a huge success.
The authors trace the role of authorities and engineers as well as cyclists and community groups in shaping local cycling policies and practices. This collecting of empirical wisdom approximately Spain's American possessions had far-reaching results. Making Technology Masculine: Men, Women, and Modern Machines in America, 1870-1945 maps the historical process through which men laid claims to technology as their exclusive terrain. She problematizes the very idea of the American kitchen. One issue missing from many discussions on the topic, however, is that women are not equally underrepresented in all engineering majors. The ready acceptance of glass containers and the practice of separating waste were rooted in national practices of a culture of thrift on the one hand and coercive wartime policies of reuse on the other.
If one wishes to pursue something else at the same time e. The argument builds on the understanding that environment is the result of human intervention. Things are so valuable because they are so scarce. Although both authors are North-West Europeans, they have accomplished an outstandingly balanced treatment of west versus east, north versus south and large versus small. To say that technology is male comes as no surprise, but the claim that its history is a short one strikes a new note. Prioritizing the humble and mundane material culture and positioning consumers and users as The People Who Shaped Europe is a bold and provocative move in a field where the master narratives at least have been dominated by great inventors and entrepreneurs, spectacular innovations and heavy technology.
Design historians would do well to consult Consumers, Tinkerers, Rebels, both as an example of how transnational history can be written, but also as proof of the potential relevance of design history to a broader academic community. The book also includes unique illustrations ca. More specifically, they trace how the culture of thrift had been reinforced in coercive wartime policies when authorities dealt with shortages during the German occupation and how the practice became a source of the 1970s history of glass container activism. It is a e-book approximately dreaming and realizing, and approximately pondering that you can still make certain the variation. In more recent years, however, activists, researchers, and policymakers have increasingly turned to mobilizing older technologies in their pursuit of sustainability. In 1980, she became a research associate for case development at the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, where she researched and wrote case studies on technology management. Lerman is an associate professor of history at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.
The purposeful amalgamation of craft, circuitry, and computing in e-textiles is intended to complicate our cultural understandings of highly gendered domains Buechley, 2006. To say that technology is male comes as no surprise, but the claim that its history is a short one strikes a new note. Who has decided how Europeans have dressed and dwelled? Ze legt uit waarom mannelijke machines de moderne ijkpunten van de technologie zijn geworden en daarbij baseert ze zich op een groot aantal bronnen. She is board member of the Fulbright Center, the Netherlands American Studies Association and served as chair of Humanity in Action, The Netherlands 2006-2010. We were thrilled when Karen agreed to take on the role of coordinator for central, eastern, and southeastern Europe. Although these identities come to be seen as self-evident or even natural, they are the outcome of diverse, repeated, and ritualized performances as part of the everyday life of the university.
