1. de Silva, Adrian. "Concepts of Gender and Gender Regime in the Parliament Debates on the Gender Recognition Bill and in the Gender Recognition Act" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, TBA, Berlin, Germany, Jul 25, 2007 <Not Available>. 2018-09-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p182041_index.html>

Abstract: National and international legal developments prompted the British Labour government to draft the Gender Recognition Bill, a bill to make provision for and in connection to change of gender. The Bill passed both Houses in 2004 with an overwhelming majority. This paper examines the concepts of gender that emerged during the second reading of the Bill in the House of Lords and the House of Commons, respectively, and the concept of gender that underlies the Gender Recognition Act with regard to their implications for bi-genderedness as a normative gender regime.
Despite the fact that the Gender Recognition Act departs significantly from any previous laws in Europe that regulate gender transitions, it nevertheless reproduces a concept of normative bi-genderedness. While biology-based assumptions that were voiced in Parliament remain trapped in the logic of bi-genderedness, too, adherents of a gender logic that forgo inquiries into the causality of gender or gender dysphoria implicitly question the operations of a naturalised bi-gendered regime.

Abstract: Although a number of studies have observed that gendered language use, as observed in face-to-face communication, also applies to various modes of CMC, none to date have examined gender-specific behavior on information and communication platforms, such as e-learning platforms in a university context. Theory is first discussed in terms of how social gender influences our “virtual” behavior and by this the use of information and communication platforms and second, in what ways and to what extend technology shapes human behavior. Gender differences are explored by a content analysis of four information and communication platforms looking at four different aspects: language use, choice of topic, participation and involvement, and access to platforms. In addition, interviewed experts were asked for their long-time experiences (and observations) on gender-specific online communication and interaction. Analyses reveal gender differences in all four categories that hinder women using the “new” social software. Based on the findings, the author has found 10 strategies (“Undoing-Gender-Actions“ ) giving guidance and advice for the implementation and use of information and communication platforms to avoid gender-specific barriers in communication and interaction.

Abstract: This chapter illuminates the ways in which the coherent arrangements of prisons contribute to variation in implementation, functioning, and consequences of a purportedly gender neutral policy, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), between women's and men's prisons. Guided by grounded theory, two waves of qualitative interviews with inmates, staff, and volunteers at two Midwest women’s prisons were conducted for a total of 61 interviews. Interviews were supplemented with archival data obtained from state historical archives, news outlets, and the Iowa Department of Corrections, as well as participant observation of prisoner advocacy group meetings and the Iowa Board of Corrections’ meetings, and a content analysis of an online discussion forum for correctional officers. Qualitative findings were contextualized with descriptive statistics from the 2011-2012 National Inmate Survey conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics. We find that the gendered subtext of prisons shape the way the PREA is perceived and implemented, to different effect in men’s and women’s prisons. Overall, we argue that due to founding logics that differentially shaped the coherent arrangements of men’s and women’s prisons, blanket policies will operate differently in these institutions. The gender subtext of prisons, specifically the structural arrangements of and cultural processes within men’s and women’s prisons form different landscapes in which the PREA is perceived, enforced, and responded to. Given these findings, we call for gender-informed policy that takes gender subtexts into account but that also avoids the trap of statistical discrimination in some gender responsive policies.

5. Dawuni, Josephine J.. "Teaching Gender When There is No Gender to Teach: Exploring the Opportunities and Challenges for Teaching Gender at Liberal Arts Colleges" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, SHERATON HOTEL (DOWNTOWN) ATLANTA, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2018-09-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p512320_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: This paper examines the opportunities and challenges for integrating women’s studies and gender issues into college classrooms where there is no specific focus on gender both at the college wide level and within individual courses. The paper revisits bell hook’s Teaching to Trangress which among other things seeks to focus on making the classroom “the most radical space of possibility in the academy”. Using interviews from feminist scholars in a newly created liberal arts college, the paper will explore both the challenges and opportunities for feminist scholars in teaching introductory social science courses when there is no gender and women’s studies center at the College.
