EROTICS: An Exploratory Research on Sexuality & The Internet - Literature Review

20 July 2009

By Manjima Bhattacharjya and Maya Indira Ganesh

The literature review produced to guide the development of the EROTICS' research framework assesses the status of current writing and research on sexuality, the internet and women. It places a special emphasis on feminist perspectives on what technologies in general, and the internet in particular, mean to and for the construction of gender and women’s lives.

The review is organized into three parts. Part I encompasses the theoretical and conceptual approaches to studying the internet and locating women by examining perspectives on gender, feminisms and technology. Part II looks at specific thematic areas addressed in the literature and analyse the gaps and limitations in existing research. Part III is the conclusion and summary of findings, including some directions for the proposed cross country research study.
