Book Manuscript Workshop with Dr. Sarah Applehans
Special Location: the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California
On March 13, 2023, the AJI and the Computer History Museum will co-host their first Book Manuscript workshop for Dr. Sarah Appelhans, on Precarity on the Bleeding Edge: Navigating Gender and Immigration Status in Semiconductor Engineering.
Dr. Appelhans is an anthropologist and postdoctoral research assistant at Bucknell University. She is currently the resident social scientist in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Bucknell, exploring how to teach undergraduate engineers to work on complex
sociotechnical problems in interdisciplinary teams. Her book investigates the intersections of gender, race/ethnicity, and immigration status in the high-velocity semiconductor industry.
We look forward to a fruitful partnership with the Computer History Museum’s David Brock, a historian of technology, the museum’s Director of Curatorial Affairs, and an AJI Board Member. We expect a rich conversation combined with the excitement of working in a new setting. We hope attendees will sneak in a visit to the CHM while they are onsite.
