Guest editors: Wendy Harcourt and Thanh-Dam Truong


From Gender, Technology and Development

This special issue on Bodies, Sexualities and Gender looks at changes in technology and gender in relation to sexuality, embodiment, and development. The issue features the latest feminist thinking about sexuality in relation to technology understood within the broader debates on gender and science, bodies and health, culture and economic development. It takes up economic, legal and social concerns around technology and gender, questioning the assumed emancipatory power of technology for women. The contribu­tions trace the tensions and complexities around technology and sexual­ity from diverse disciplinary viewpoints. The issue endeavors to capture the changing nature of sexuality in relation to technology and develop­ment, looking at embodiment, artificial reproduction, sexuality and reproduction, trafficking, organ trafficking, and sexual pleasure.
