Description

Intersectional feminist perspectives and the liberation ideologies they birthed, apply to all oppressed people groups and orientation identities. Intersectional feminist perspectives actively work to frame and reframe feminism as a larger context in which bodies (Black, Brown, First Nations, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, and any body within these and other marginalized people groups) own agency and are deserving of political representation and freedom. This course requires previous engagement with intersectional feminist theory and critical race theory as we will collectively work to map and expand these foundational ideologies to existing and emerging issues in digital and algorithmic culture. Together we will question how digital technologies limit or enhance agency; how algorithmic culture influences our perceptions of each other; and how digital media influence popular culture narratives on race, gender, class, sexuality, and other identity categories.
