Digitizing Queerness: Embracing the Corporeal and Space in a Digital City

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Politicisation of sexuality is clearly repressive in resulting public surveillance and persecution of marginalized sexualities. Nonetheless, such oppression also generates entry points for opposing strategies. While it was argued that the internet serves as a cultural capital for Queer subjects who are lacking of public revenues for social mobilization, we are witnessing an increase of online homophobia attack on Queer identities in recent years. Drawing upon Elisabeth Grosz's idea of the corporeal body in the virtual city, this paper aimed to explore both the liberatory space of internet technologies and the materiality of the cyberspace in relation to Queer activism.
