Feminist activism has been reconfigured in the 21st Century through digital technologies. Activist work, protest actions and products, creative reactions, and modes of reception circulate quickly beyond the local context of germination, becoming transformed in the process of transfer. Other feminist digital products, such as artist performances or media interventions, are also able to take on the quality of activism and protest. What circulates, including bodies and political or popular consumption, through digital spaces thus becomes part of the technologies of activism.

Technologies of Popfeminist Activism is a research project funded by an Insight Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
