Description & Coverage
Description:

Despite continued public interest in issues relating to gender and computing, there exists a relative scarcity of texts on this topic.

Gender and Social Computing: Interactions, Differences and Relationships provides an overview of the major questions that researchers and practitioners are addressing, outlining possible future directions for theory development and empirical research on gender and computing. This comprehensive reference focuses on three areas of research on gender and computing: gender and computing in the work arena, gender and computing in cyberspace, and gender in eDating.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Mediated Communication for Business Women and Professionals
  • Disability Identity and Gender Representation in Second Life
  • eDating and Online Behavior
  • Gender and Anonymity in Virtual Teams
  • Gender and E-Marketing
  • Gender Differences in Social Networking
  • Gender Segregation and ICT
  • The Impact of Gender on ICT Usage

  • Women in IT Careers
Reviews and Testimonials

Edited by the editor-in-chief of the International Journal of E-Politics (IJEP), this volume presents 16 chapters, or previously published articles, from several volumes of IJEP edited by Celia Romm Livermore. This reprinting of originally published and revised material is not clearly noted in the preliminary materials of the volume, nor is it presented in the same place in each chapter. While the topic is of importance in today's ever-widening world of computerized interactions, for those who already subscribe to the journal this book is not a necessary purchase.
Separated into three sections, the work presents chapters on gender and computing such as in the work arena, in cyberspace, and e-dating. Topics covered include not only gender but also disability, segregation, arranged marriages, and feminism as well as the gender split in general. The detailed table of contents and index make it easy for the user to find desired areas of information, although much can be found using databases for the periodical itself as well. The listing of the 35 international contributors is not in alphabetic order, but rather in the order of the presentation of the chapters in the book. This collection and collocation of previously published work is of specific use to those studying gender and computing who want everything in a single location.
