cyberfeminism

“Cyberspace allows for a wider range of expression and enables an encompassing of a variety of layers. In other words, one can be an activist, a theorist, an artist and a cyberpunk all in one…”

Aiko Joshi “Humanising Cyberspace”, In: South Asian Women’s Forum, Nov 29, 1999.

Cyberfeminism is an important school of Cyberculture Studies and Theories. (…) [It] stands for political strategies as well as artistic methods and was most active in the 1990s.

This annotated bibliography is meant to be an introductory work and cannot give an ultimate overview of the entire field. I chose articles by researchers, activists and/or artists that either identified as cyberfeminists or have been closely affiliated with self-identified cyberfeminist groups or collectives. Although US-American researchers have greatly contributed to this field, I did not limit my research to US American resources. Due to the nature of the Internet, cyberfeminist activism is global and cannot be pinned down to one country.

My main research questions are: How have cyberfeminist activists theorized this new space and women*’s roles in it? How do they define ‘cyberfeminism’ and who are the collectives / groups involved in this movement?

  2. Hi Riotmango,

    ich hab ein Paper über Cyberfeminismus geschrieben, das jetzt veröffentlich werden soll. Deine Zusammenfassung hat mir dabei sehr geholfen und ich würd gern mit dir über einige Aspekte diskutieren. Können wir mal Skypen?
    Wär dann schon mein erster Diskussionspunkt – no gender/body in cyberspace?

    Liebe Grüße Tina
