This course on feminism and digital culture covers topics that include Internet identities and communities, technologies of self-reflection and surveillance, online misogyny and sex-segregation in digital labor, digital art and creative robotics, and how human-computer interaction is shaped by intersectionality in constituting agency, mediation, an difference.The themes of the course emphasize the continuing role of embodiment, materiality, labor, particular situations, and emotion in engagement with computational media and distributed networks, and the situated contexts of technology use. This William and Mary course developed as part of a larger distributed online collaborative course (DOCC) sponsored by the FemTechNet initiative, an international collective of scholars who address theories about posthumanism, cyborg culture, bioinformatics, reproductive technovisions, disability technologies, and critical sci-art. Peer-to-peer assignments emphasize active learning through collaborative writing, critical making, speculative design, and media production.
