“Gender, Sex, and Tech! is a rich, fresh, and nuanced volume of essays considering unexpected relationships and interactions amongst different bodies, identities, and technologies, and it does this in accessible yet conceptually strong ways. The series of essays is engaging from the first page, and leads the reader through analyses of technologies we think we might know, but in formative uses of that tech that may not be well known or even recognizable to many audiences. The chapters are followed by considerate and genuinely thought-provoking questions for discussion, making this volume especially useful not only for classrooms but for students looking for technology studies with a little more bite.”
—Jennifer Dyer, Associate Professor and Head, Department of Gender Studies, Memorial University of Newfoundland
“A unique resource to reflect on the ways in which gender and sex are key to our use and awareness of tech from dating apps to video gaming to surveillance. The editors provide comprehensive introductions to core feminist research approaches that bring readers to an understanding of intersectionality as a lens for social transformation.”
