Dr Eleanor Drage is a Christina Gaw Research Associate at the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies, working association with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence. Her publications focus on how humanity defines and constitutes itself both through unstable socio-cultural processes such as race and gender and through fallible technological systems. Her work investigates how queer and intersectional methodologies can be applied to improving technological processes and systems. She likes Mezcal and pistachios, but not together.

Her work focuses on gendered and racialised histories of violence, and how these histories manifest themselves in new and emerging technologies. She is particularly interested in how anti-Asian racialisation intersects with AI. Originally from Aotearoa New Zealand, Kerry loves cooking, dancing, and being near the sea.
University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies
The University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies is a multi-disciplinary centre for research and teaching. Working together with over 20 departments within the University and an international network of gender scholars beyond, the Centre conducts outstanding research and teaching on a broad spectrum of approaches to understanding gender and sexuality in relation to the human subject.
The aim of the Centre is to increase our capacity for rigorous gender analysis and to promote awareness of its relevance in historic, economic, political, artistic, social, and scientific contexts. As such, we welcome inquiry from multiple and overlapping perspectives including (but not limited to) various forms of feminist theory, lesbian and gay studies, queer theory, transgender/trans* theory, and critical sexuality studies.
We aim to push across the boundaries of disciplines and identities to promote ambitious and ground-breaking work that is able to build on the strengths of research across the University of Cambridge, and to deeply engage with the complexities of studying gender in our world.
