Digital Dilemmas Through Networked Assemblages: Reshaping the Gendered Contours of Our Future
In this concluding chapter, we focus specifically on gender as a material-discursive phenomena through which identities and social relations are enacted as everyday forms of digital culture and leisure-related practices. The tangible and intangible aspects of our gendered lives are also embedded within the less visible ways digital spaces are designed, mined, collated, and navigated. Through this new materialist informed approach, we consider how gender norms, patterns, and power relations are bound in and among the increasingly indistinguishable sociotechnical relations that entangle our online and offline lives.
