The Techno-Apparatus of Bodily Production

A New Materialist Theory of Technology and the Body

What if the terms "technology" and "the body" did not refer to distinct phenomena interacting in one way or another? What if we understood their relationship as far more intimate – technologies as always already embodied, material bodies as always already technologized? What would it mean, then, to understand the relationship between technology and the body as a relation of indeterminacy?
Expanding on the concept of the apparatus of bodily production in the work of Donna Haraway and Karen Barad, Josef Barla explores how material bodies along with their boundaries, properties, and meanings performatively materialize at sites where technological, biological, technoscientific, (bio-)political, and economic forces intra-act.

Local Knowledge and Gender in Ghana
The emergence of global knowledge societies is recently questioning the meaning and relevance of local knowledge in the context of Southern countries. Women have proved to be the central actors in the multiple channels of local-global networking, using these new social ties for the negotiation of old and new elements of knowledge, scientific knowledge and development discourses. The inherent politicisation of knowledge and the direct objective of transforming societal institutions are not only signs of resistance against global hegemony, but serve for a new definition and for a defence of local culture and of local knowledge.

Contemporary Lifestyles of Women in Cairo

This study is concerned with socio-cultural changes in Egyptian society. These can be analyzed as a competition between »westernizing« and »easternizing« cultural concepts. In particular, it addresses the »new veiling« which is being adopted by an increasing number of young women.
In analysing these phenomena the study adds a new dimension to work addressing the »veiling-issue« by differentiating between class, age and gender dimensions.
