From Feminist Theory
Feminist authors, bloggers and Tweeters provide poignant feminist responses to current events and feminist issues; they model critical forms of interpretation; they share information; and in the process, they often make us laugh. This special issue conceptualises and analyses three key dimensions of recent and contemporary feminisms’ media practices:feminist media events, the online and paper archives of feminism, and feminist activist techne´ – the technical practices and practical knowledge feminists come to embody as they do feminism with media. It examines how media practices, communication infrastructures and information technologies constitute key elements of doing feminism in the present that resonate with prior feminist activisms.
