Research Project: Feminist Cyberlaw
This project proposes the creation of “feminist cyberlaw,” a new field in technology studies that centers how gender, race, sexuality, and disability shape cyberspace and the laws that govern it. The project revolves around community, coursework, and scholarship that will start and sustain a new generation of scholars, teachers, and practitioners who engage cyberlaw through an intersectional feminist lens. The project organizes this new generation to produce scholarship that will serve as the curricular backbone for new courses in the field and sustained meetings, production, and engagement.
