About this book

The author draws on her long-lasting research in the field, providing insight in both historical and more recent discussions of gender in relation to computers and computing.

HILDE G. CORNELIUSSEN Associate Professor of Digital Culture in the Department of Linguistic, Literary and Aesthetic Studies, University of Bergen, Norway.

Reviews

'Corneliussen examines why expansive gender equity in Norway seems to influence every major segment of society - except computing technology. Her discourse analysis explores reasons for stability in gender-ICT relations, and suggests pressure points for change.'

- Thomas J. Misa, University of Minnesota, USA

'Corneliussen's book is a challenging intervention into the debate over gender and technology. Through a diffractive reading of the research, Corneliussen tells an alternative story about gender and technology, demonstrating that their relations are not stable and fixed but hold potential for change.'

- Susan Hekman, University of Texas at Arlington, USA
