Gender Technologies and Utopias

Papers are invited for this special panel at ‘Return to Gender’, the forthcoming graduate conference at the University of Glasgow on 25th November, 2006. The panel will address how technological, scientific and medical advancements have affected perceptions of gender both culturally and socially. Are traditional notions of masculinity and femininity becoming irrelevant given the present diversity of possible alternative identities? How might we envisage gender utopias/dystopias in the later 21st century? How has technological/scientific research opposed or contributed to the existence of gendered power structures? Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Trinity College, Dublin

Hosted by
The Centre for Gender and Women's Studies

Theme: Doing Gender History: Methods and Models

This conference will explore the shape and content of gender history – moving
beyond men's history (traditional ) history and women's history to develop a
new holistic paradigm that includes and values the actions/experiences and
ideas of both men and women. We ask: How do we do gender history? What would
it look like? Do we have specific examples of doing gender history?
