Gender Studies and Cyc Micro-Theories

Recently, on 28.7.2008, the Semantic Web company published an interview with Corinna Barth about gender studies and the Semantic Web. I blogged about that.

Stefano Bertolo pointed out in a comment that CYC allows Microtheories and that this allows alternating views.

I asked Corinna about that and she helped me a lot by passing on a few pointers from her vast literature collection about CYC and gender studies, indicating that this fact is known and that she referenced a study by Alison Adam (1995, 1998). I will share the references with you, if you google for gender studies and Semantic Web, it may help you:
  • Catherine Sherron (2000): Constructing Common Sense. In: Ellen Balka/ Richard Smith: Women, Work and Computerization. Kluwer, 111-118).
  • Geoffrey Bowker/ Susan Leigh Star (2000): Sorting Things Out. Classification and its Consequences. MIT Press)
  • Alison Adam (1998): Artificial Knowing. Gender and the Thinking Machine. London and New York: Routledge.
  • Adam, Alison (1995): Embodying Knowledge. A Feminist Critique of Artificial Intelligence. In: The European Journal of Women’s Studies, Vol.2, 355-377
