[Commlist] ECREA Pre Conference: ‘Doinggender’ across mobile apps

Tue Oct 04 21:41:25 GMT 2022

*ECREA Pre Conference: ‘Doing gender’ across mobile apps

Online discourses and practices on gender tend to reflect dominant ideas from societies, just as symbolic materials are outcomes of social arrangements that legitimise and strengthen society's essential division. Online and digital spaces are not only technological arenas, as they reinforce power relations, perpetuating hegemonic masculinities and femininities anchored in heteronormativity.

Taking an interest in the nuances of the dynamics between technology and gender, this ECREA 2022 pre-conference focuses in particular on the field of mobile applications (m-apps). Through a call for papers, the ‘Doing gender’ across mobile apps pre-conference invited abstracts on studies and analyses of the gendered possibilities of mobile applications, grammars, platform politics and content, as well as their uses, appropriations and embodiments, in order to make sense of how they are shaping hegemonic normativity and changing gender roles.

The MyGender project organises and promotes this ECREA 2022 pre-conference: ‘Doing gender’ across mobile apps, opening the registrations to the interested public in this event that will take place via online, free of charge and open to the public (registration until 16th of October): <>
