My paper, "Genderforking: deconstructing gender norms in a community blog", has been accepted for the second Gender Bodies and Technology conference. The conference, which is hosted by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Virginia Tech, will take place on 26th-28th April 2012 in Roanoke, Virginia, USA.
I'm very excited at the prospect of presenting my work in this setting! I've never attended a conference outside of the UK before, and the conference itself - an interdisciplinary exploration of the relationships(s) between gender and technology - should be fascinating, so it will certainly be an experience to remember.
