Kirkup, Gill (2003). Open and virtual universities. In: Kreutzner, Gabriele and Schelhowe, Heidi eds. Agents of change: virtuality, gender, and the challenge to the traditional university. Publication of the International Women's University: Technology and Culture (9). Opladen, Germany: Leske und Budrich, pp. 43–56.


About the book: One of the major driving forces behind the international Women's University was the interest in changing the traditional university. In its pursuit of this goal, the projekt vifu (the Virtual International University) combined the overall focus on gender with a conceptual stress on virtuality as a potential inroad to transform and innovate the established academic system.
