Abstract

iMedia: The Gendering of Objects, Environments and Smart Materials examines the relationship between gender and current and future media technologies. Drawing on science and technology studies, new media theories and feminist epistemology, Sarah Kember suggests that existing theorisations of smart objects have tended to be shaped by disembodied knowledge practices that are implicitly or explicitly masculinist in their approach. Younes Saramifar finds this a challenging, rich and imaginatively articulated book.
