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>. 2019-04-21 <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: This paper explores gender play in MMOs as a potentially transformative practice and process. While there’s a great deal of scholarship that explores the dystopian aspects of online gaming, as Michel Foucault would remind us, the practices of anonymity that allow for online harassment also allow for resistance. Based on ethnographic interviews with World of Warcraft players, this paper looks at how those engaged in practices of online gaming understand those practices and how they are challenging the forms of “gender accountability” (as feminist sociologists like Sarah Fenstermaker put it) that reproduce binary norms of masculinity and femininity.

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.
