“Relive a rich conversation about cyberfeminism and digital selfdom on the occasion of Legacy Russell’s book release of Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto over Zoom with Salome Asega, Caitlin Cherry, Zoé Samudzi, Tsige Tafesse, McKenzie Wark , Mandy Harris Williams, and Jenna Wortham.
Glitch Feminism is a vital new chapter in cyberfeminism that explores the relationship between gender, technology and identity. In an urgent manifesto, Russell reveals the many ways that “the glitch” performs and transforms: how it refuses, throws shade, ghosts, encrypts, mobilises and survives.

“Express Newark’s Director, Dr. Fran Bartkowski has, like the rest of us, ample time to ponder about our roles, our work, our struggles and our eventual return to a new normal. Thus the birth of ROCK STEADY. This will be a regular podcast series that will feature artists, activists, Rutgers folks, Newark community members as well as Express Newark Partners and Residents.
The inaugural episode features a conversation with Rutgers Chancellor Nancy Cantor, without whom, Express Newark would not exist. Their lively discussion includes the idea, as discussed in the New York Times by Legacy Russell, a curator at the Studio Museum of Harlem, of what ‘an emotionally intelligent future for institutions can be’.”
