Fibreculture Issue 26: Entanglements—activism and technology

I am very pleased to announce that a Fibreculture Journal issue I edited with Tanya Notley and Jean Burgess has been published. This issue explores the entanglements that arise due to frictions between the philosophies embedded within technologies and the philosophies embedded within activism.

It includes ten academic journal papers as well as seven invited articles from practitioners who are working on the very front lines of activism and technology. This section for practitioners is a first for the Fibreculture Journal. These articles allow us to better understand the decisions made by organisations and activists who are leading debates, negotiations and discussions and from those who have most at stake because they depend on technology working and working well for activism.
