Assistant Professor of History Marie Hicks Publishes an Article in CORE, the Magazine of the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley

Marie Hicks, assistant professor of history, published an article in CORE, the magazine of the Computer History Museum. The museum, located in Silicon Valley, is the premier museum of computing in the world and their widely-read magazine publishes writing from everyone from academics to best-selling authors like Walter Isaacson. Her article takes on the fiction of meritocracy in high tech fields, using the history of women in computing to show why our emphasis on getting girls to code might be misguided.

The article is titled, “Against Meritocracy in the History of Computing” and it starts on p. 28 of the issue.
