Learning from Online Feminist Students

This semester, I am teaching my Online Feminist Space class at home at Pitzer rather than on leave at USC.

AIDS Feelings

My talk at Concordia stirred a lot of feelings in the community: an intended effect of my “mixed reality experience” produced through the experiences of real bodies, watching digital materials, in real rooms. I didn’t expect the anger, however. Here’s a review by Jacob Roberts, from The Link, that gets to some of those complex responses. ... read more »

We Walked Out

About an hour into my course on Feminist Spaces Online a student informed us that an absent class member had just texted her suggesting that we should leave class and join her at the USC Walkout for a Safer Campus.

Online Feminism Class Mid-term Reflections

My USC undergrads are great sports, engaging in innovative primary research and production for their course work for Online Feminist Spaces.
