Virtual Gender by Eileen Green
Book DescriptionAs yet there has been relatively little published on women's activities in relation to new digital technologies. Virtual Gender brings together theoretical perspectives from feminist theory, the sociology of technology and gender studies with well designed empirical studies to throw new light on the impact of ICTs on contemporary social life. A line-up of authors from around the world looks at the gender and technology issues related to leisure, pleasure and consumption, identity and self. Their research is set against a backcloth of renewed interest in citizenship and ethics and how these concepts are recreated in an on-line situation, particularly in local settings. With chapters on subjects ranging from gender-switching on-line, computer games, and cyberstalking to the use of the domestic telephone, this stimulating collection challenges the stereotype of woman as a passive victim of technology. It offers new ways of looking at the many dimensions in which ICTs can be said to be gendered and will be a rich resource for students and teachers in this expanding field of study.

Gender, Health and Information Technology in Context, Hardback (October 2009)
This volume breaks new ground by asking how our understandings of gender can be informed by exploring the socio-technical relations of ICTs in health care, and how far an appreciation of the ways in which gender works can inform and improve our understanding of how ICTs are being developed, implemented, and used in health care contexts.
Young People, Risk and Leisure, Hardback (May 2004)
Social theorists have claimed that modern life is increasingly risky and uncertain and is profoundly effecting experiences of everyday life and our sense of self. Drawing upon empirical and theoretical work of young people's risk taking and leisure, this book examines such claims in detail.
Through the Wardrobe, Hardback (January 2001)» View all books by Eileen Green
This text sets out to fill a gap in the existing literature on the ambivalence of fashion and dress by drawing on a wide range of women's experiences with their wardrobes, and providing empirical data. The contributors provide case studies of the reality of women's relationships with clothing.
