Digital feminisms: transnational activism in German protest cultures

Contributor(s): Scharff, Christina [Editor] | Smith-Prei, Carrie [Editor] | Stehle, Maria [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: London Routledge 2017Description: vii, 170 p.ISBN: 9780367074777.Subject(s): Protest movements | Germany | Digital media - Political aspects | FeminismDDC classification: 303.484082 Summary: The relative rise or decline of feminist movements across the globe has been debated by feminist scholars and activists for a long time. In recent years, however, these debates have gained renewed momentum. Rapid technological change and increased use of digital media have raised questions about how digital technologies change, influence, and shape feminist politics. This book interrogates the digital interface of transnational protest movements and local activism in feminist politics. Examining how global feminist politics is articulated at the nexus of the transnational/national, we take contemporary German protest culture as a case study for the manner in which transnational feminist activism intersects with the national configuration of feminist political work. The book explores how movements and actions from outside Germany’s borders circulate digitally and resonate differently in new local contexts, and further, how these border-crossings transform grass-roots activism as it goes digital. This book was originally published as a special issue of Feminist Media Studies. https://www.routledge.com/Digital-Feminisms-Transnational-activism-in-German-protest-cultures-1st/Scharff-Smith-Prei-Stehle/p/book/9780367074777
