This Spring, I am teaching Contemporary Feminist Theories, MALS 72200, at the CUNY Grad Center to six students with a range of interests and specialties. We are revisiting this website, and the class I have taught two times from it: THE NOWHERES & EVERYWHERES OF ONLINE FEMINISM.
Our definitions here are not complete, but beginning, and will, perhaps, be changed on this blog post as we move forward.
I will note that the datedness of words (and some experiences) has been important to our first conversations about readings from Cyberfeminism 2.0, Gajjala and Oh (2012). We see that the precipitous speed of internet change and terminology (and experience) is not well aligned with the temporality of academic thinking and writing.
Cyberfeminism 2.0: Discussions of feminism in or about a digital realm with aspirations of equality and equity and immediacy
Cyberfeminism 3.0: immediacy and diversity and visible and geography and openness and scale
The internet is a part of your physical being
Feminist Space: room for more diversity and more immediate access
