Bringing Feminist Perspectives into Community Informatics
AbstractThrough analysis of two Canadian Research Alliance for Community Innovation and Networking (CRACIN) case studies this paper argues that feminist perspectives strengthen community informatics (CI) theory. While feminist CI has addressed the dynamics of access and intricacies of technological design, labor, both gendered and invisible, is one area that needs further refinement in CI. Résumé À travers de deux études de cas de la Canadian Research Alliance for Community Innovation and Networking (CRACIN) cet article soutient que les perspectives fém inistes renforcent la théorie de l'informatique communautaire (IC). Pendant que l'IC a adressé la dynamique de l'accès et les subtilités et le travail, à la fois divisé par le sexe et invisible, ceci demeure un domaine qui a besoin d'advantage de raffinement dans l’IC.
