Call for Submissions

Women's Studies in Communication announces 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
