Corinna Bath is feminist science and technology studies researcher in engineering disciplines. She received her first degree (Diplom) in mathematics/logic. In her doctoral thesis at the computer science department of the University of Bremen (2009) she explored technology design methods that aim at avoiding problematic gendering in the field of computational artefacts. In her current position as Maria-Goeppert-Mayer professor for gender, technology and mobility at TU Braunschweig and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences, she extends and transforms these issues towards the discipline of mechanical engineering. Her research interest and projects range from historic approaches and ethnographic studies of disciplinary cultures to engagements in technology design and gender theory.
Corinna held guest professorships for “gender studies in engineering” (2012 at TU Berlin) and “gender and technology” (2016 at TU Graz), which aimed at a systematic teaching program on gender studies in engineering and collaborative interdisciplinary research that makes a difference for users of artifacts in development. With Prof. Bettina Wahrig she is the chair of the interdisciplinary PhD program “Gendered configurations of humans and machines” at TU Braunschweig, Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and Braunschweig University of Art (https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/kommag).
