Changing Aspects: Reflections on the Geo-Political Dilemmas of a Feminist

Much has been written on the inequalities existing in feminist scholarship between Western Europe and their Central- and Eastern colleagues. Perhaps most obviously, this unequal relationship—this Western feminist hegemony—is reproduced by severe disproportionality in research funding. Another evident inequality is the dominance of the English language within academia, promulgated by both the most ‘prestigious’ journals and ‘major’ conferences in the field, all of which stipulate in their rules for engagement that English be used as ‘accepted practice’.

Teaser Image: 

There's a certain magic that goes with participating in Salzburg's annual Civil Media Unconference, (and not just because it takes place in the land of the Sound of Music).

We were there talking about feminist zines and blogs, and enjoyed every minute. This radical, participant-led three day gathering brings together media practioners, policy makers, researchers, tech heads, and social change enthusiasts for ongoing discussions and networking around a range of grassroots media concerns (and the programme is pieced together collaboratively online, through a wiki).

Over 100 folks turned up last December and both gums and laptop lids were flapping around the question of "Cultures-Participation-Dialogue". So, we want to know, what makes grassroots media "democratic"?
