July 10, 2014—Fembot, a CSWS Special Project, announces the release of its latest edition of Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology. Issue 5: Queer Feminist Media Praxis, was edited by Aristea Fotoupolo, Kate O’Riordan, and Alexandra Juhasz.
Also: The Ada site has a new design. As always, the emphasis has been on accessibility. Fembot designers have worked to balance aesthetic considerations with the need to ensure that the site is as accessible and usable as possible. People who worked on and provided support for the redesign include: Karen Estlund, Paula Gardner, Mél Hogan, David McCallum, Bryce Peake, Staci Tucker, and Jacqueline Wallace. Fembot expresses gratitude for their support as well as for the support provided by the University of Oregon’s Center for the Study of Women in Society, the Digital Scholarship Center, and the School of Journalism and Communication.
