Show Your Work: Feminist Knowledge Production in Digital Communities

Feminist writers discuss what the new digital landscape means for them—how to deal with a constant barrage of critiques and suggestions, how race and gender impact the ways communities form online, the ethics of live-tweeting academic conferences, and more.
