Listserv Invitation: "Gender Bodies & Technology"

In Spring 2010 the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Virginia Tech hosted an interdisciplinary conference entitled Gender, Bodies & Technology (GBT) that attracted international participation from over 120 scholars working in this exciting field of research from a wide range of disciplinary approaches. Feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive and requests to strengthen and build a network of scholars in this area were
strongly articulated. We invite scholars whose work relates to the Gender, Bodies and Technology nexus to join our growing listserv.

Please visit our website which includes an archive of the 2010 conference:

We invite you to join the listserv which serves as a place to share about new works, publications and art exhibitions, as well as circulate relevant calls for papers and job postings. The list is also an opportunity to network with other scholars in this area of research and to build a sense of community among those of us that otherwise might not cross paths due to our own disciplinary locations. We are also in the process of drafting a call for papers for a 2012 conference, details of which will be forthcoming.

Also, please feel free to forward this invitation and subscription
instructions to folks (or other relevant listservs) that you know who might be interested in joining the list:
