Surfing the Waves of Feminism: Cyberfeminism and its others, Susanna Paasonen, δημοσίευση στο Labrys Marilena Pateraki
Since the early 1990s, cyberfeminism has been a discursive arena for analyzing inter-connections of gender, new technology, and the Internet in particular. Nevertheless, there remains little agreement over the term itself, especially when concerning its connections to feminist thought. Cyberfeminism is associated with the so-called third wave feminism, characterized by irony and diversity but also defined against – and as other to – feminism. This article investigates the definitions of cyberfeminism, its relation to feminist theorizing. Asking what happens when diversity becomes a truism and political identifications are articulated as individual rather than collective, the article argues for an understanding of feminism not as “waves” but as dialogue where diversity is acknowledged also in writings from earlier decades.
