Computer Science 295.04 "Special Topic: Women and Computing"

Computer science, like most fields, benefits from a wide variety of approaches and perspectives. However, women are significantly underrepresented in the computing fields, in both academia and industry. Why? In this weekly reading group, we will reflect upon the nature of the discipline and consider a wide variety of papers on issues pertaining to women and computing, from individual stories to ecommendations for changing the ways we teach and practice computer science.

Prerequisite: Second year standing.

Disclaimer: I usually create these pages on the fly, which means that I rarely proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details. It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
