Looking at Men and Masculinities through ICTs, and Vice Versa

This lecture series is entitled: "Gender Effects: How Women create Technology of Tomorrow". However, in this session I will focus on men and masculinities, and their diverse interrelations with information and communication technologies. This includes addressing to some of the shortcomings of contemporary studies of men and masculinities that neglect ICTs; the different kinds of social relations of men and masculinities to ICTS, in work, organisations, and social change more generally; and the implications of ICTs for sexualities and sexual violences, ending with the current case of online revenge pornography.
