FemTechNet’s 2014 manifesto proclaims, "we recognize digital and other technologies can both subvert and reinscribe oppressive relations of power and we work to make these complex relations of power transparent." This call to arms echoes many predecessors in feminist and collective art practice. Well before the public had access to the internet, feminist artists and organizations turned to a variety of technological tools in order to foster a community that would tackle discrimination in the art world. Yet the circulation strategies used in feminist art practice have not been fully explored, despite being integral to quantifying its historical impact. Mapping and social network analysis software applications, however, offer possibilities for assessing these questions. This session seeks papers that not only historicize these types of feminist networks but also are interested in utilizing digital humanities techniques to distill and visualize mechanisms of feminist dissent. Further, topics that explore feminist artists and art collectives outside the United States especially are encouraged.
