Childbirth is more admirable than conquest, more amazing than self-defense, and as courageous as either one.

Call for Submissions: Digital Feminisms: Gender and New Technologies
Christina Haralanova | 6 November 2006


The complexity of new technologies has altered the way we think about time, space and ourselves in the digital age. Whether it is business, media, entertainment, advocacy, art, education, social action, politics, paid and unpaid work, or a myriad of other sites of contention, the ability of new technology to converge with and transform past, present and future ways of interacting with the world in which we live has immense and wide-ranging implications.


Given this context, invited are contributions to a special issue of Atlantis focused on Gender and New Technologies. Welcomed are submissions that contribute to an inquiry on how new technologies have informed gender’s self expression and histories; affected gender, race and culture; influenced the representation of gender; and changed the way in which gender issues are viewed or pursued.

In pursuit of a diverse and wide-ranging debate, the issue seeks contributions from a broad range of areas, including Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, New Media, Cultural, Film and Communications Studies, History, Visual Arts, Computer Science and any other area relevant to the discussion. Given the complexities of new technologies, encouraged are submissions that think across geographical divides, histories and media, including (but not limited to) the Internet, digital arts, locative media, WiFi, aesthetic and narrative analysis, film, video, television, educational software/delivery, medical technologies, and visual and digital art. Interdisciplinary approaches combining target areas are also welcomed.

Possible topics for this issue include, but are not limited to:

- New technologies, gender and self
- New technologies gender and race
- New technologies, gender and media
- New technologies, gender and history
- New technologies, gender and environmentalism
- New technologies, gender and social action
- Gender and issues of access to new technologies
- Gender and digital art
- Gender and convergent technologies
- Gender and the digital body
- Gender and digital networking
- Gender and discourses in computer science
- Gender and digital identities

All contributions should be accessible to an audience from many different backgrounds interested in participating in the creation and sharing of feminist knowledge. Atlantis articles are peer reviewed. They contribute to a publication that strives to meet the most significant academic and feminist expectations of Atlantis’ colleagues. Articles submitted for consideration must be no longer than 6000 words (including notes, references, appendices, etc.) and must be typed double-spaced.

Please send submissions, in sextuplicate, addressed to Cecily Barrie at the Atlantis mailing address:
