Minerva’s Machine: Women and Computing

Karen Frenkel, author, reporter and filmmaker, will show the award-winning documentary, “Minerva’s Machine,” at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, at Wake Forest University’s DeTamble Auditorium.

“Minerva’s Machine” investigates why there are fewer women in computing than men and explores gender differences in response to technology. Frenkel, who will lead a discussion following the film, co-authored “Robots: Machines in Man’s Image” with Isaac Asimov and has written more than 50 articles for magazines such as Business Week, Discover and Forbes on science and technology topics.

Frenkel has recently been a technology and culture columnist for CyberTimes.

The public presentation and lecture is sponsored by Wake Forest’s women’s studies program, information systems department, and the teaching and learning center.
