As editor of Feminist Media Studies, I'll be crass and blatantly promote the journal, which has featured several pieces on gender and technology. See, for example, "The Home Computer in Korea: Gender, Technology and the Family" (vol. 1, no. 3 as I recall). Also, see the journal Gender, Technology and Development. And, did anyone mention Juliet Webster's work on women and technology?

I'll second the referal to Mia's and Susan's book. It's a good one.

Subject: [Air-l] sources on gendering of technology?

Hi everyone -

I was hoping some people could suggest some sources on the subject of gendering technology? I'm thinking in particular of research that looked at things like "women use the phone to gossip while men use it for business" and so forth.

References that talk about using the Internet for "information gathering" versus social activity would also be helpful.
