Producing Knowledge, Reproducing Gender: Power, Production and Practice in Conte

by Mary Corcoran

Producing Knowledge, Reproducing Gender gathers essays from scholars across Ireland to investigate just how knowledge itself is created, distributed, and collectively understood in institutional settings, with a sharpened focus on what role gender can play in that process. Gender dynamics and inequality are crucial but often neglected factors in the control and dissemination of knowledge as they play out in the power structures of social institutions ranging from the corporate world to the political sphere. Covering topics like homelessness, sex work, technology cultures, and broadcast media, the contributors to this book demonstrate how knowledge production processes and practices operate within fully gendered domains. Producing Knowledge, Reproducing Gender offers important new insights into the dual and intersecting processes of knowledge production and gender reproduction as they are enacted in institutions and their practices.
