From the CFP:
We are two of many scholars who recognize that networked digital technologies offer vibrant opportunities for community-building, identity formation, and coalitional activism. In this Blog Carnival, we encourage a conversation that frames community-building itself as a social justice praxis in digital spheres, inspired, in particular, by networked activism efforts around decolonial justice, intersectional feminism, queer and trans-liberation, anti-racism, and the spaces where these movements overlap and mutually inform. Duthely’s (2017)work offers a potent rhetorical approach for understanding these movements; using Black digital feminism as framework, she asserts, “as Black women work to tell digital counterstories and build community via collective memory, they engage in defiant acts…that disrupt traditional forms of knowledge-making” (p. 204). We’d like this Blog Carnival to explore similar sites of digital activism and interrogate the ongoing complexities, challenges, and evolutions that define doing digital work in order to bring about more just and equitable ways of living and relating in the world.
