gender studies

Right now, I’ve already made up my mind. Days ago, I was having a little problem with my Literature 35 class—I just can’t decide what topic I’d report on this coming Friday (yes, Friday na!). My first choice was Sandra Harding, which may cover her criticism on Women, Science, and Society. The title of her study alone thrilled me. But upon researching for more background information, I found this online: On the Cutting Edge: Cosmetic surgery and the technological production of the gendered body by Anne Balsamo. In the simplest form of explanation it’s about the question of where is gender located in one’s technologically changed identity. Whoa! Her words got me into thinking. The following day I approached my professor and told her I am doing Anne Balsamo. So Balsamo it is!
