Article
Este texto reseña la película Sorry We Missed You (2019) dirigida por Ken Loach. Particularmente, se enfoca en la caracterización de las tendencias del trabajo hacia la informacionalización y plataformización en el capitalismo actual, cuyo grado de penetración se observa en distinta medida en las historias de los protagonistas, representando éstas...

El texto tiene por objetivo sistematizar la literatura que aborda la relación entre género y actividades informáticas en los últimos años, específicamente aquella que de distintos modos ayuda a responder a la pregunta por los factores que alejan a las mujeres de las actividades laborales vinculadas a la informática, prototípicamente ubicadas en el...

Article
Full-text available
This article aims to apply some concepts from cognitive materialism to the sociological problem of social stratification in capitalism, both in theoretical and abstract terms and through concrete historical examples. After discussing the necessity for a theory of social classes, a division is presented between two types of resources: those physical...
Article
The main question to be discussed in this article is: Why do women not program? In other words, why, in an activity that appears similar to others where women have gained ground, one cannot find an analogous process of incorporation? We propose a scheme of five related factors in order to analyse the genealogy of women’s exclusion from the world of...
Article
The main question that this article attempts to answer is: Why women do not develope software? The article presents five concentric rings which when combined make up our hypotheses regarding how to build female gender segregation in software production processes. We will first discuss the relationship between gender and technology in general by foc...

Grounded in a empirical fact, this paper aims to contribute to the featuring of authority mechanisms that are deployed in software production processes. Methodologically, it rests in twenty-four in-depth interviews with IT workers, from the city of Buenos Aires.

Contrary to what happens in other areas with higher levels of innovation, software developers do not necessarily possess academic credentials. Although this varies according to the type of productive process, our field work revealed that high levels of remuneration, creativity, hierarchy, or product complexity usually match employees who do not hav...

Project
In recent years, gender indicators have been improving in different areas of STEM in Argentina, even though evident gaps and disparities still exist throughout scientific work and technological institutions. This project is set out to understand the work processes and dynamics that shape women's participation in specific areas of science and technology and at different stages of their professional careers. Building on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of internal regulations, labor processes, and local cultures in STEM-related organizations in Argentina, our investigation intends to: (1) characterize recruitment, promotion, evaluation, and performance dynamics; and, subsequently, (2) determine how these dynamics have an effect on women's career paths and employment structures. The selected areas and institutions under study are: (a) nuclear physics at the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA); (b) agricultural technological research at the National Agricultural Technology Institute (INTA); and (c) software development at IT firms assembled in the Chamber of Argentinian Software Industries (CESSI). Our argument is that the existing structural and quantitative analyses of gender distribution in different areas of STEM are crucial but insufficient. Instead, our observations are aimed at assessing possible gender bias in relation to the cognitive, technical or material division of labour in these activities, including recruitment and evaluation processes.
