Lecture: Where Are We Now? Feeling Our Way in Post-Cyberfeminist Space
Curious about whether the recent media coverage and first-person online engagement with feminist topics constitute a new paradigm of cyberfeminism, in this talk, Esmé Hogeveen will consider how cyberfeminist artworks illuminate, or offer strategies for navigating, the emerging affective spaces associated with the rise of public dialogue and the #MeToo movement.
