This class will address creative and political practices and scholarly dialogue surrounding current themes in new media and digital culture from an interdisciplinary feminist perspective. We will examine the histories and cutting-edge scholarship on feminism and technology produced through art, design, science, and visual media. Topics include cyberfeminism; social change and political activism through digital media; post-digital reproductive technologies and feminist futures; digital sexualities and intimacies; virtual/real-world ideas across cultures; and the role of digital technologies in social inequalities. In addition to digital and new media theory, key readings will come from women’s, gender and sexuality studies and critical race and ethnicity studies; examples will come from art, culture, and politics.

Course Requirements:

Assignments in this class will include two review papers of digital art, object, product, application or practice and a final project or research paper.
