Privileging-or not-the literacies of technology
Department of Humanities
For some women in this study, especially those who came of age at times and in cultural ecologies that favored conventionally determined social roles, gender and the related timing of key technology developments played an important role in shaping the acquisition and development of electronic literacy. To understand more precisely why some women considered this combination of social and historical factors so influential, this chapter features the stories of three women-Paula Boyd, Mary Sheridan-Rabideau, and Karen Lunsford-and underscores their birth dates in the late 1960s as a time of great social unrest in the United States and as the dawn of second-wave feminism.
