>As usual, our colleagues in the visual arts seem a few steps ahead
>of us. We have a few books that explore the history of women in
>electronic and computer music, but little that explores or propounds
>feminist theory in these fields.
>
>In general, women seem much better represented in the digital visual
>arts than in computer music. What are some of the reasons? And
>what sort of topics might be addressed in feminist theories of
>digital music?

>In the beginning Cyberfeminism: Next Protocols was a call posted on
>mailing lists by the old boys network, the first international
>cyberfeminist alliance. Now Cyberfeminism: Next Protocols is a book
>that presents an introduction as well as an outlook for the large
>network of contemporary cyberfeminism. Protocols are both scientific
>records of observations and coded commands for digital and human
>procedures of communication. next protocols reaches boldly into the
>utopian gap between the now and its possible futures.
>
>If gender is not obsolete, there is a stake in reformulating it
>under conditions ruled by the dominance of the digital medium and
>test its capacities to subvert cultural practices. cyberfeminism
>carries the fem in its center – fem which hints politically at
>gender and the female sex, yet exceeds, enjoys, and remodels this
>relation. With approaches coming from art, theory and activism,
>cyberfeminism. next protocols invents and documents a cyberfeminism
>which is dedicated to the wilderness of precise critique and
>experimental thinking
