Commerce and knowledge work today backdrop so-called transmedia stories, those told across technology platforms, as well as the making, sharing and patterning of knowledges across economic and social sectors, making up what some call the transdisciplinary.

In this class we study this context as well as the practices of social media and the possibilities it offers for feminist activisms, learning and play.

Where do we all come in? This women’s studies senior seminar is a chance to share scholarship and practice with two feminist thinkers about media possibilities today and how feminists might move and shape them. Katie is a feminist scholar of media and technoscience who likes to tell stories about different media and what they are good for. Jarah is a new media artist and technologist who likes to teach ways of playing with activist media and how to workshop skills and ideas. This is an exciting, experimental semester!
