The Importance of Care and Affections in our Communities: Copylove and the Invisible Commons | ZEMOS98

The Importance of Care and Affections in our Communities: Copylove and the Invisible Commons | ZEMOS98 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Copylove started in 2011 as a local informal network for investigations into commons and feminist practices. Later, it turned into a public and open investigation via www.copylove.cc (only in Spanish) led by Sofía Coca (ZEMOS98, Sevilla), Txelu Balboa (COLABORABORA, Euskadi) and Rubén Martínez (Fundación de los Comunes, Barcelona) in which we tried to extract, from the experiences we had, what kind of ties and relations are established within a community of agents, whose practices and ways of doing generate commons for the whole community. Copylove was a way of getting deeper into all that we consider that reproduces desirable conditions of existence: affection, processes of interdependence, mutual aid, community love, care, etc. When we say Copylove, we mean everything we produce and reproduce that can take us closer to “good living”, to a sustainable living, and not simply in monetary...

FemHack - Feminism and Hacking Converge in a Montreal Tech Collective | .dpi

FemHack - Feminism and Hacking Converge in a Montreal Tech Collective | .dpi | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In the past several years, a movement of feminist and social justice-oriented hackerspaces has made itself visible in different parts of the world, more precisely in Australia, Europe and now on the West Coast of the United States. These spaces rely and are founded on specific feminist principles in order to counter patriarchy and other forms of oppression. This article tells the story of FemHack, the emerging feminist hackerspace in Montreal. A comparatively recent initiative of feminists who enjoy hacking and do-it-yourself activities, the community's main goals are to invite more feminists into the broader hacker movement and to start a discussion about feminist participation within the worldwide hacker culture and politics.

I don't understand today's feminists -- because they can't write - Los Angeles Times | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Not today’s feminists, though, but the feminists of yore -- of what’s called “the Second Wave,” the radical women’s movement of the 1960s and early 1970s. It’s not that I agreed with what those Second Wave feminists advocated: It mostly consisted of throwing away your makeup, ditching your husband, and going to live in an all-women, macrobiotic-diet “collective.”

Feminist Theory and Free Software | P2P Foundation

Feminist Theory and Free Software | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Feminist scholars and feminist expertise are rarely mentioned in the context of FS studies, and if so, relating mainly to topics such as the “gender gap” (Kelty 2008) or the “coproduction of gender and technology” (Faulkner 2001; Oudshoorn et al 2004)3. However, we claim that instead of merely assessing the gender ratios in the free software community, feminist theory can help to better understand the epistemology of free software – or more precisely the entanglement of epistemology, ethics and ontology; of knowing, being and acting. That is, while we agree that the free software movement has had profound effects on the epistemic practices involved in software creation, i.e. the ways in which software if produced, improved and modified collectively, it is insufficient to focus only the epistemic dimension. Instead, a performative understanding of knowledge requires us to understand and account for the fact that epistemic practices are inherently ethical practices because a) instead of merely representing what is there, they are also generative and b) they may have differential effects on different agents.

Introduction by Golan Levin :: Deep Lab Lecture Series

Deep Lab is a collective of cyberfeminist researchers, organized by STUDIO Fellow Addie Wagenknecht to examine how privacy, security, surveillance, and anonymity are problematized in the arts and society. The Deep Lab participants, all women, are an international group of new-media artists, visualization designers, data scientists, software engineers, hackers, journalists and theoreticians, who are engaged in the critical assessment of contemporary digital culture. In the second week of December, these experts will work at the STUDIO on an accelerated pressure project, and deliver four evenings of public presentations: the Deep Lab Lecture Series.

Feminist Hackerspaces: The Synthesis of Feminist and Hacker Cultures » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Between 2013 and 2014 three new hackerspaces popped up in rapid succession along the west coast of the USA. These spaces were significant; they offered, for the first time, a clear vision of how intersectionally-inflected feminist principles might inform a new breed of hackerspaces. New models of hackerspaces seemed capable of narrowing the gap between hacker and feminist cultures.

There has been a recent growth in interest in feminist approaches to practices like hacking, tinkering, geeking and making. What started off as an interest in furthering representations of women in the technical fields of computer science and engineering, often along the lines of

liberal feminism, has now grown into social, cultural, and political analyses of gendered modes of social reproduction, expertise, and work, among others.

Re-Imagining Government By "the People": Woman's Suffrage - Center for Effective Government | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

One hundred and sixty-six years ago, 300 women and a few men gathered in the small, upstate New York town of Seneca Falls at the first convention to discuss and advocate for women’s’ rights. At the close of the two-day event, 100 of those gathered signed a “Declaration of Sentiments” that included a resolution supporting women’s right to vote.

Revolution at Point Zero. Discussing the Commons with Silvia Federici and Tine De Moor | open! | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Federici speaks from her experience within the anti-globalisation movement, the teachers’ and students’ movement, and the feminist movement among others. Her essay “Feminism and the Politics of the Common in an Era of Primitive Accumulation”, included in her recently published book, Revolution at Point Zero, has been crucial in defining the commons. In it she paints a loose, working definition of the commons as radical change, not to be considered as things, but rather, as social relations.
