> 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 Ulman: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/13/arts/marc-spiegler-cnn-style-guest-editor/ (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 discussions: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/10253866.2015.1052967
> Cheers, Claudia.
