New book: Technologies of inclusion: Gender in the information society

April 12th, 2012 Comments Off

Edited by Knut H. Sørensen, Wendy Faulkner and Els Rommes. Tapir Akademisk Forlag, 2012.

The Information Society is an evolving project, with new ‘ensembles’ of social practices and of information and communication technologies (ICTs) emerging all the time. But not everyone is equally included in this project. Breaking new ground with its focus on inclusion, and drawing on an extensive body of European research, Technologies of Inclusion: Gender in the Information Society analyses a range of strategies which succeeded in attracting more women and girls as users or designers of ICTs. This reveals a set of underlying dynamics – what the authors call technologies of inclusion – by which different strategies work. It also highlights new gender-ICT ensembles which challenge long-held notions of technology as a masculine domain. This book is a must, for scholars interested in shifting gender-technology relations and for practitioners interested in effective digital inclusion. Indeed, for anyone interested in the evolving project of the Information Society.
