Upcoming Workshops and Seminars: 

Quinnipiac University | Women's Studies program to present
"Cyborg Mommy" on March 3, 2004
The Women's Studies Program in the College of Liberal Arts will present "Cyborg Mommy," a multimedia performance that examines the increasing technological encroachment upon everyday life, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3 in Alumni Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Pattie Belle Hastings, assistant professor of computer science and interactive digital design at Quinnipiac, plays Cyborg Mommy, a persona who combines humor and poignancy to demonstrates how it came to be that "everything she knows about computers she learned from her mother." For more information, please call 203-582-8652.

SUNY Plattsburgh Women's Studies Program to present
"History of the Cyborg: a cyberfeminist retelling of the
relationship between woman and machine" on April 1, 2004
Pattie Belle Hastings will present and discuss pieces and processes from her new body of work, “History of the Cyborg,” which exposes the historical timeline of woman and machine while laying the framework of hysterical/historical “proof.” As with the evening performance of Cyborg Mommy, these new works tell a story that includes the invisible women without whom there would be no technological world. “Women have been mostly left out of the technological timeline (except as consuming units for manufacturing and advertising, or in the case of reproductive technologies - the bodies that carry the babies), so I am excavating the lost history of woman/machine and reintroduce it using art, image, video, sound, and text.” These new works embody hybridity, absurdity, parody, and capitulation in the merging of flesh and technology, woman and machine.

SUNY Plattsburgh Visiting Artist Lecture Series to present
“Cyborg Mommy” on April 1, 2004
Pattie Belle Hastings, assistant professor of computer science and interactive digital design at Quinnipiac University will present “Cyborg Mommy,” a multimedia performance that examines the increasing technological encroachment upon everyday life, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, 2004.
