Idiotic Code Seminar - Poached Eggs: Women as Poachers

  • Butcher's Tears 45 Karperweg Amsterdam, NH, 1075 LB Netherlands (map)

The term ‘poaching‘ is predominantly connected to male-coded activities, often celebrated as a heroic out-law figure, taking from the rich and giving to the poor. What are the female ways to poach, the tactics to enter enclosed territory, the relationships, networks and tricks of appropriation?

With this exploratory mapping session, we will draw on Stephen Wright’s definition of poaching in Toward a Lexicon of Usership (pages 47-49, 2013), and discuss the gendered understanding of poaching from a feminist perspective.
