Editorial Reviews

Review

Toys and Tools in Pink is original, very timely, and engaging. Carol Colatrella’s readings of fiction and film clearly demonstrate ways in which cultural narratives are produced and provide context for contemporary understanding of identities and roles in science and technology. There is much scope for new work at the intersection of literary and sciences studies, because the central role of science in society today has raised new challenges in almost every field of study. The time couldn’t be more perfect for a book like this.” —Kavita Philip, associate professor of women’s studies at the University of California, Irvine

 
 
 


“Carol Colatrella’s analyses of how gender is imprinted through cultural texts provide a substantive contribution to scholarship that addresses the problem of the under- representation of women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Moreover, Colatrella addresses this problem with a sustained evenness of scholarly critique and clarity of expression, which makes the book both engaging and enjoyable to read. I highly recommend Toys and Tools in Pink for scholars in all fields of study who are interested in this important problem.” —Priscilla Wald, professor of English, Duke University
