The reading group focuses on the issue of decolonizing sonic cyberfeminisms. It raises questions about the Eurocentric conceptualisations of technology, sound and gender implicit in much recent activism around these themes.
The reading group is taking place from 4th November to 2nd December 2016 with a short reading or readings for each week. Discussions take place via email.
