Sammanfattning

The relationship between gender and technology has been explored for several decades. Consistently, the field of technology has been described as being permeated by masculine discourses, which find expression in the cultural tendency to treat technological work as an almost exclusively masculine domain. In this paper I treat technology and gender as mutually constitutive, and illustrate this assumption with a case in which gender was re-constructed through the use of computers in physics education. Inspired by the ANT methodology, the study aimed at scrutinized the black box of technology and gender construction. The findings support the initial claim that the construction of technology plays a crucial part in the construction of gender. The same findings further indicate that, under certain circumstances, an attentive and gender-sensitive use of new technology can contribute to changes in the construction of gender.
