Book Reviews

“One of the most rich subfields of cyberculture studies is, for lack of a better term, cyberfeminism, the study of gender and the Internet in general and the study of feminism and the Net in particular.”

” Recent and relatively recent contributions to this field include Anne Balsamo’s Technologies of the Gendered Body: Reading Cyborg Women, Lynn Cherny and Elizabeth Reba Weise’s Wired Women: Gender and New Realities in Cyberspace, and Sadie Plant’s Zeros Ones: Digital Women the New Technoculture.

“A new and important contribution is women@internet: Creating New Cultures in Cyberspace, edited by Wendy Harcourt. Our coverage of this book is unique. First, we begin with a review from Kalí Tal, a Professor of Humanities at Arizona International College of The University of Arizona. Next, we feature a lengthy and engaging rejoinder from the book’s editor, Wendy Harcourt. Finally (for the moment at least!), Kalí Tal replies to Harcourt’s rejoinder.

This is interesting stuff. The site is great, it has a walth of reviews and rejoinders and so on. Navigate it by hacking the URL!!!
