Ecomasculinities: How a masculine discursive subject approach to the individual differences theory of gender and IT impacts an environmental informatics project

aisDavid presented a paper a AMCIS, in Lima, Peru, in August 2010, entitled ‘Introducing Eco-Masculinities: How a masculine discursive subject approach to the Individual Differences Theory of Gender and IT impacts an environmental informatics project,’ which was Nominated for Best Paper at the conference.

Abstract: In this paper I introduce the concept of eco-masculinities as a philosophical and critical project to understand the links between gendered and pro-environmental behaviour. The background of the feminist project, the sociology of masculinity, and the post-gendered world to which they both aspire, alongside a brief history of the project of ecofeminism, occupy the bulk of the paper. In the last section I briefly consider how these philosophical approaches might impact upon analysis of an EU Project entitled Digital Environment Home Energy Management System.
