Online journal Re-public < www.republic.gr/en <http://www.republic.gr/en> >  has just published a forum titled "Gendering new media theory". The forum explores the challenges that gender poses for the analyses of digital societies. Articles include:   


Rosalind Gill - From sexual objectification to sexual subjectification: The resexualisation of women’s bodies in the media   < http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=175 <http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=175> >

The figure of the autonomous, active, desiring subject has become the dominant figure for representing young women via new media. But this sexual subjectification, Rosalind Gill argues, has turned out to be objectification in new and even more pernicious guise.


Laura Robinson - Virtual structure vs. digital agency: Revolution, mediation, or replication?  < http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=162 <http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=162>  >
The spread of information technologies does not automatically mitigates the effects of exclusion and deprivation, it can even accenuate it.

Helen Kambouri and Pavlos Hatzopoulos - The banality of blogging or how does the web affect the public-private dichotomy  < http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=165 <http://www.re-public.gr/en/?p=165> > 
Is blogging the means by which the ‘feminine’ voices previously excluded from public discourse and kept hidden in the ‘private’ sphere, can now be released?
