Cyberfeminist Practices
Maria Fernandez, Faith Wilding and Michelle M. Wright, editors

Part performative intervention, part radical polemic and activist manual, Domain Errors! Cyberfeminist Practices introduces a diverse international group of feminist writers, artists, theorists, and activists engaged in formulating a contestational politics for tactical cyberfeminism. This recombinant book highlights productive intersections of feminist and postcolonial discourses through critical analyses of the embodied politics of digital culture. Opening areas repressed in previous cyberfeminist discourses, the authors map contemporary social relations between women as they are mediated and transformed by digital and bio technologies. “If you want another e-feminist volume rehashing Lacan, weaving as metaphor, or the icon as on-line identity, don’t buy this book. These cyberfeminisists take no prisoners as they march through the virtual territories of postcolonial power vectors in an attempt to establish living models of resistance.
