Launch of APRIA journal #4: Feminist by Design!

We are thrilled to announce Issue #4 of APRIA journal, Feminist by Design, edited by Mariana Fossatti, Tigist Shewarega Hussen and Namita Aavriti Malhotra. Find it on our homepage now. 

The algorithmic and data-driven technology we use every day regularly discriminates on the basis of race, gender, and age. Against this complex digital landscape, the latest issue of APRIA journal explores what happens when feminist design and research methodologies provide the springboard for building (digital) infrastructures in the world. It asks, what would a feminist internet look like?  

With reflections mainly from the Global South, Feminist by Design showcases research journeys, findings, and feminist methodologies from a diverse group of researchers who were part of the Feminist Internet Research Network (FIRN). Together, these essays and analyses are steppingstones to a feminist internet—one that ‘works towards empowering more women and people of diverse and marginalised sexualities and genders—in all our diversities—to fully enjoy our rights, engage in pleasure and play, and dismantle patriarchy.’ 

This journal features contributions from Nyx McClean, Nadège, Débora Prado, Aayush Rathi, Horacio F. Sívori, Akash Sheshadri, Ambika Tandon, Bruna Zanolli and Bruno Zilli, and is conceptualised with Nishant Shah, professor of Aesthetics and Cultures of Technologies at ArtEZ University of the Arts
