iFeminism: Virality and Transnational Activism
With a focus on transnationally-circulating digital media, we will think through how feminist engagements are thickened by new technologies. Working with instances from across the world we will examine whether digital media users rewrite feminism, feminist practices, and activism. What are the creative ways in which virality has altered feminism, similarly and differently across the world? Informed by postcolonial theories, we will remain attentive to the global inequalities within which social media narratives circulate. Similarly, a theoretical engagement with the intersectional entanglements of power will ensure a comparative analysis of feminist activism that is engaged with regionally-specific concerns about power disparities. 3 hrs. sem.
