From the breast pump to freezing women’s eggs, new technologies have long promised to “liberate” women, but the results are often uneven, freeing some women while worsening the oppression of others.
Once and Future Feminist explores the intersection of feminism and tech with guest editor Merve Emre, author of Paraliterary: The Making of Bad Readers in Postwar America. The collection explores the advantages and disadvantages technology offers feminism from all angles: sexual, biological, economic, and political.
In the age of Silicon Valley, these issues are more pressing than ever, and this collection pushes readers to consider not only whether emancipatory feminism is possible today, but also what it might look like.
Contributors include Cathy O’Neil (Weapons of Math Destruction), Andrea Long Chu ("On Liking Women"), Miriam Zoll (Cracked Open: Liberty, Fertility, and the Pursuit of High Tech Babies), Silvia Federici (Caliban and the Witch), Sarah Sharma (In the Meantime: Temporality and Cultural Politics), and James Chappel (Catholic Modern).
