Thank you Tim for the introduction and for the invitation to add some
thoughts to this discussion (I promise not to sniffle). I think that the
topic of net art and feminism came up in the discussion, and I wanted to
jump in to inquiry into your thoughts about its developments since
cyberfeminism. I particularly intrigued by the emergence of young women
photographers using the format of selfies and social media platforms as
their mode of distribution. I discuss this in classes and opinions seem to
be divided on the issue (along gender lines). Is this an empowering gesture
or not so much? One notable case is the work of the Argentinian artist Amalia
(disregard the sparse history). Here is also an recent essay by a former
fellow grad student at the art history department at Cornell and now
colleague, Derek Murray on the issue that I use in my classroom

Cheers, Claudia.
