Feminist Hypertext Pedagogy

Carlton Clark examines the position of hypertext in feminist pedagogy.

"But knowing a hypertext is more like knowing another person, or at least another changing, living being of some sort. Like a person, every hypertext shifts and resists final predication; the text cannot be "nailed down." Software, such as Eastgate System's Storyspace, that allows the wreader to add and delete links and change the text further enhances the sense of hypertext as a living being."

It's an interesting article, though Clark ignores previous work that he ought not to have overlooked.
