DescriptionPaper presented at the ACHS 2018 conference
That there are hidden stories of women engineers will not be a surprise to gender historians and cultural theorists, but it can be to heritage experts or engineering professionals. This paper draws on insights from the project aimed to make use of the story of Dorothee Pullinger, early woman engineer, as an intervention tool to help build today’s engineers’ confidence and skills in telling their own stories.
Drawing on Bruno Latour’s conceptualisation of the complex relationship between subject and object, the intersection between woman’s subject and woman’s object is considered.
