Feminist Media Production in Europe (funded by FWF 2008-2011)

Women have always played an important role in movements for social justice. Using media to transport their messages, to disrupt social orders and to spin novel social processes, feminists have long recognized the importance of self-managed media. In the past two decades an increasing number of women have taken the tools of media production into their hands; a vital social phenomenon that has gone largely undetected by members of the public, academia, and even sometimes the feminist movement.

Dandizette: a pulp magazine for media perverts

Teaser Image: 

Dandizette is an online gazette about deviant media in all its forms. We celebrate unique and independent contributions to an increasingly saturated and standardized media world. This includes old and new media alike, but we revel in the trouble-making potential of new media technologies and their — dare we say? — democratising nature.
