Gender & Society: Table Of Contents, Volume 31, No. 1

Read the current issue here.

GENDER & SOCIETY, Vol. 31 No. 1
Gender regimes are a key theoretical tool for two of the articles in this issue, a tribute to the enduring and important work of Joan Acker who died in 2016.  First, Dana Britton delves into the puzzle of the fluctuating gender relevance for women in academia, followed by  Lauren Alfrey and France Winddance Twine who apply an intersectional perspective to “geek girls” and how they fare in the predominantly white, male tech industry.  While these articles add dimension to our understanding of gender and organizations, the others in this issue advance our understandings of masculinity, motherhood and relationships. Tony Silvia  studies rural men who have sex with other men but do not define it as homosexual. Angela Frederick reveals the double bind and censure disabled / Deaf mothers face through by a “medical stare” that identifies them as outside the “normalcy project.” Cristen Dalessandro and Amy C. Wilkins illustrate how age and gender shape the ways in which we understand and relay the narratives of our relationships. And starting out the new year, we are proud to showcase the photography of Susan J. Webb on the cover.
