Abstract [en]

ICT and the role of universities - a technopolitical and postcolonial challenge When ICT (information and communication technology) development issues are situated in the context of knowledge- and technology co-development between low and high income countries, the need for understandings and praxis of postcolonial ICT emerge and the challenges for the academy and its technical faculties enhance. Relevance seems to be a core concept often raised. For development the change of position from merely technology transfer to co-development is strongly in demand. Feminist technoscience with emphasis on ICT is certainly motivated by transformation goals. The reasons for transformation are not only seen in the ongoing difficulties of achieving appropriate ICT system solutions especially in low income countries, but in the way we face contemporary processes of knowledge and technology development. The prerequisites for the latter are still to be met, and urge for transformation not the least within technical faculties of universities. Experiences from development of feminist technoscience within technical faculties implies recognitions of techno- and research politics deeply rooted in understandings of knowledge and technology production as processes, which occur in distributed systems. In other words, knowledge creation takes place on the boundaries between universities, companies (private sector) and other regional, national and international actors (public sector). Hence the role of the university comes into sharp focus and its (dis)ability of transformation. In the study presented experiences from University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden, will be discussed.
