This issue of Media-N extends a moderated open dialogue about the current
state of new media art and feminism, which took place in New York as part of
New Media Caucus’ offsite panels and activities held concurrently with the
CAA 2011 conference. What emerged from this conversation was a digital
feminism that is not a single entity but a multiplicity.

Women and Film in Africa Conference: Overcoming Social Barriers
July 19, 2011 12:51 PM
This is a 1st Call for Papers for a conference on the contemporary and historical
role played by women in the film, television and video industries in Africa. From
the Arab North Africa, West Africa, Central and East Africa, through to Southern
Africa, women have emerged from the double oppression of patriarchy and colonialism to become the unsung heroines of the moving image as producers, directors, actresses, script writers, financiers, promoters, marketers and distributors of film, television and video in postcolonial Africa. Sadly, such immense contributions by women are underrepresented, both in industry debates and in academic research.
