FALLING BACK IN LOVE WITH BEING HUMAN

ALL EYES ON PALESTINE
The Responsibility to Witness Suffering
Reflecting on the atrocities in Gaza since Oct. 7, this essay compels us to consider the role of capturing and witnessing the genocide in Palestine. Dismantling Israeli apartheid is presented as a feminist issue that requires us to be critical of our gaze in order to refuse complicity in the violence.
by Rana Nazzal Hamadeh

 

CINEMATIC GIRLBOTS UPEND GENDER
Film analysis of Ex Machina (2014), Her (2013), and M3GAN (2022) demonstrates how AI has been used to reinforce and subvert gender norms. The girlbots in these films reveal the urgent need to disrupt hierarchical and binary views of gender, technology, and labour.
