Design and feminism : re-visioning spaces, places, and everyday things( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How well do our designed environments- the places and spaces where we live, work, and play- meet our aesthetic and functional needs? Increasingly, the distinction between the spaces considered public and private or work and home is becoming more blurred. As a result, innovative designs are needed to meet the challenges of our ever-changing environment. Our streets, parks, dwellings and tools are designed to a "one-size-fits-all" standard, and the responses of the design community to meet diverse needs have been mixed at best. Design and Feminism offers feminist critiques of these inadequate design standards, and suggest ideas, projects, and programs for change. The interdisciplinary essays reflect the writers' diverse fields- architecture, planning, industrial and graphic design, and architectural, urban, and design history. Essays cover such subject as rethinking the American city, graphic design and the urban landscape, working at home, theories of women and design, and a trio of essays on industrial designs. A review essay of the literature in these fields- the first of its kind- rounds out the collection."--Publisher's description

The dream of the perfect child by Joan Rothschild( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Points to the thousands of decisions about prenatal testing that are made each day in the doctors office, the context in which they occur, and how they add up to the discourse of the perfect-and imperfect-child. Argues that the mainstream bioethics community has been ineffective in raising appropriate questions, resulting in support for the status quo. Draws on counter-voices from medicine and feminist ethics, as well as from pregnant women and people with disabilities, and reevaluates the uses of genetics and prenatal testing. [back cover]

Turing's man, Turing's woman, or Turing's person? : gender, language, and computers by Joan Rothschild( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay compares two recent books on computer technology in terms of their usage of gendered or gender-free language. The two books examined are "Turing's Man: Western Culture in the Computer Age" by J. David Bolter and "The Second Self: Computers and the Human Spirit" by Sherry Turkle. It is argued that the two authors' gender differences in language usage and style (with Bolter using gendered language, and Turkle using gender-free language) reveal gendered differences in approach to subject matter, questions asked, content, and cultural and philosophical assumptions. The impact of this critique for teaching is examined, with specific consideration of use of the critique for raising gender issues in the classroom. (7 end notes and 21 references) (EW)
