Women's Studies in Communication invites submissions for a special issue on
"Exploring Gender, Feminism and Technology from a Communication Perspective" to
appear in September 2006.  Across disciplines, studies of technology have been a
rich source for understanding women's experience and for advancing feminist
theory. The goal of this special issue is to emphasize the contribution of
communication practice and/or theory in exploring this relationship.  More
specific themes within this general emphasis may include examination of women's
uses of particular technologies, the gendered nature of technology, the effect
of technologies (or technological culture and globalization) upon women's lives,
and developing/critiquing feminist theories of technology.   Any type of
technology may be considered; although they are welcome, manuscripts need not be
limited to communication and information technologies.  Manuscripts may by
theoretical, empirical, or descriptive.  For empirical studies, we welcome the
full range of methodologies. All manuscripts must be clearly labelled as
submissions intended for this special issue and submitted following standard
guidelines described  at  http://www.bk.psu.edu/faculty/ramsey/submissions.html.
All submissions will be blind and peer reviewed.  Informal enquiries are welcome
and should be directed to WSIC Associate Editor Michele Jackson,
jackson at colorado.edu . Submission deadline:  February 1, 2006
