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
