Sex and the humaniform robot : between science fiction and robosexuality
Martín Alegre, Sara (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Date: 2018
Abstract: It might seem that the gendering of robots has mainly affected the female body but I’ll argue that we are actually ignoring (or missing) the discourse on the humaniform male body. This is richer than we might expect, if we only know where to look.
Note: This is my presentation for the Forum 'Robotics Meets the Humanities', organized by Dr. Giulio Sandini, Dr. Carme Torras and Dr. Yoshi Nakamura for the International Conference on Intelligent Robots (IROS) 2018, celebrated in Madrid (1-5 October 2018).
