[ecrea] Orienting Feminism: Media, Activism and Cultural Representation - new book

Mon Apr 30 22:04:09 GMT 2018

Catherine Dale (Chuo University, Japan) and Overell, Rosemary have just published an edited collection /Orienting Feminism: Media, Activism and Cultural Representation/ – ready for purchase for your uni library and download now ! Lots of early career researchers and postgrad work on the intersecting dynamics of feminist media and cultural representations.

*The blurb:*

This edited collection explores the meaning of feminism in the contemporary moment, which is constituted primarily by action but also uncertainty. The book focuses on feminist modes of activism, as well as media and cultural representation to ask questions about organising, representing and articulating feminist politics. In particular it tackles the intersections between media technologies and gendered identities, with contributions that cover topics such as twerking, trigger warnings, and trans identities. This volume directly addresses topical issues in feminism and is a valuable asset to scholars of gender, media and sexuality studies.
