@ The Table: “Feminism Online” + Open Call for Blog Submissions
What counts as feminism on the internet? What happens when religion is brought into the conversation? And most importantly for the Feminism In Religion Forum (FiR), what does it mean to engage in this process with an academic lens?
@ The Table and our partnered open-call consider the stakes and challenges that arise when “feminism” and “religion” come together in online blogging as a process of critique. Using Xochitl Alvizo’s “Being Undone by the Other” to begin the discussion, this conversation considers in what ways an expanded definition of critique can and cannot allow us to be undone by feminist others.
Using this as a launchpad, the partnered open-call seeks submissions that incorporate aspects of the @ The Table’s analysis in their own blog pieces on what it means to engage in feminist conversations about religion on the internet.
