Cyberfeminism: Connectivity, Critique and Creativity
Renate Klein, Susan Hawthorne (eds.)
Instant Download

An international anthology of writings on cyberculture and feminist interventions. A diverse and at times fractious discussion of issues raised by these new forms of cultural expression. The contributors engage with a range of questions including: What is cyberfeminism? How does feminism influence multimedia production? What are the possibilities for feminist activism and research on the internet? How are colonisation, cybersex and virtuality to be theorised? How do these technologies affect our theories about bodies and minds? And what are the implications for creative artists?

Natasha Mitchell, The Science Show, ABC Radio National

I’d recommend the book for anyone currently studying either a technology- or media-related course, or interested in these issues.

Jim Richards, Insights

The great strength of CyberFeminism is the desire to actualize strong critiques of the digital assumptions and promises of the era.

Tara Brabazon, Australian Popular Culture and Media Studies
