  • Abstract (short paper)

    Some scholars understand the theoretical orientations of posthumanism and new materialisms to be in tension if not in distinct opposition to previous feminisms. This essay explores select works by two contemporary artists to suggest that posthumanism and new materialism have antecedents in previous feminist media arts. This proposition encourages the recognition of feminist contributions to the history of posthumanist and post anthropocentric art practices.
