Straying - Feminist Genres - Sarah Kember

Sarah Kember

The second speaker of this panel, which reflects on how feminists have experimented with different modes of writing by inviting three feminist academics based at Goldsmiths to reflect on their decisions to stray from the usual genre of academic writing. What can we learn about feminism and genre from the point of view of feminist academics who have strayed? The discussion will widen to consider why “straying” might itself be a feminist method.

'Digital Dilemmas: Power, resistance and the internet', book launch.

David Morely, Noortje Marres, Arjun Appadurai, Marianne Franklin

Arjun Appadurai speaks at this event to celebrate the launch of Marianne Franklin's new book Digital Dilemmas, published by Oxford University Press. This new book draws on over a decade of fieldwork, scholarship and activism to give an insightful and thoughtful account of the internet and who 'owns' it. Speaking about the book, Arjun said: "Digital Dilemmas addresses an important current field of media studies. Its principal strength and originality lies in its ability to bridge social, technological and cultural approaches to the internet and to new media generally, in a space in which major studies are typically one-dimensional."
