Tanja Kubes

Dr. Tanja Kubes is a sociologist and ethnologist and is doing research as a postdoc at the TU Berlin in the Feminist STS / Gender in MINT and Planning department on “Living and loving with robots: Neomaterialist perspectives on sex robots”. From a queer-feminist and critical posthumanist perspective, she examines the extent to which traditional dichotomies woman / man, man / machine, nature / culture can be broken through intimate relationships with technical artefacts and what possibilities of a new, satisfying sexuality are offered by equal interaction with machine counterparts . In addition to the focus on gender studies and human-machine interaction, she also deals with body sociology, auto-ethnography, ethnology of the senses as well as transhumanism and posthumanism.
