We are putting together a panel for the 2020 National Women’s Studies Association Conference that considers transnational feminist anger as expressed through digital activism in a variety of contexts. Kenna Neitch, PhD candidate at Texas Tech University, looks at how sexual violence-related hashtags have been discussed on Twitter in four Central American countries. Britt Starr, PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, theorizes a transnational youth solidarity rhetoric deployed by several young women climate activists from around the globe who use social media to build political power from the disenfranchised position of youth. 

 

We are looking for a third— join us! Please share with anyone who might be interested!
