COURSES

DIGITAL FEMINISMS
Instructor of Record (Self-Designed)
Fall 2017

Media Studies / Engineering (fourth-year level)
University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, US

This course examines contemporary technologies and digital culture through an intersectional feminist lens. Scholarship and case studies are drawn from science and technology studies (STS), media theory, media art, design, and the environmental humanities. The coursework incorporates reading, writing, dialogue, and projects to interrogate a broad range of technologies through questions of gender, race, sexuality, ability, class, age, ecology, and colonialism.

The first half of the semester surveys the landscape of historical and contemporary feminisms and relates them to thematic debates on the digital such as surveillance, labor, platform politics, infrastructure, design, making, games, and virtuality. In the second half of the semester, we take a deeper dive into biologically and ecologically-inflected issues including cyborgs, reproductive and assistive technologies, artificial intelligence, posthumans, and the relationship of technology to the more-than-human environment.
