The symposium Gender/Queer Sexualities and Digital Activism looks at emerging technologies of feminism and queer activism in and around digital media and social networks. It invites international and local scholars and activists to present critical views about the role of media and technological innovation in experiences with sexuality, gender and social activism. Technology is understood as a wide range of tools and media practices embedded within cultural environments. When social media in the greater Chinese regions and globally are increasingly owned by corporate networks and prone to government censorship and surveillance, how do people creatively navigate strategies of identity, pleasure and activism? The symposium presents local and transcultural modes of activism and cultural technologies that have greatly impacted sexuality, sexual identity and sexual politics. The symposium was a part of the International Symposium on Electronic Arts (ISEA) 2016 and took place at Art & Culture Outreach on 17 May 2016.
