How wonderful, thanks a lot! Has it been published already, or is it “in process”?

Hey @agger, it is in the process of being published I think in the coming days, week…

Please do not publish the text before they do so in the journal, (I understood it would not help them reference the work, wich would negatively impact the diffusion, not sure I agree though).

Also there will be an online launch event on Decembre 3rd at 11am organised via data and society are there people interested in joining for an online dialogue, @Baobaxia is there anyone interested? @TCNXMNSM?

Hey, here we go its published:

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Fall 2020 (Vol. 6, No. 2) issue of Catalyst: Feminism, Theory, Technoscience featuring a Special Section on Computing in/from the South edited by Sareeta Amrute and Luis Felipe R. Murillo.

This Special Section articulates computing “otherwise.” The authors demonstrate that by thinking about the South as a ‘method,’ non-Western, feminist, and queer epistemologies can be brought to the forefront in the world of computing. After an introduction by Sareeta Amrute and Luis Felipe Murillo, the section features four research articles including “Corruption, Șmecherie, and Siliconization: Retrospective and Speculative Technoculture in Postsocialist Romania” by Erin Mariel Brownstein McElroy, “The First Latina Hackathon: Re-coding Infrastructures from México” by Hector Beltran, “Open Ethnographic Archiving as Feminist, Decolonizing Practice” by Angela Crandall Okune, “Taking Back the future: A Short History of Singular Technologies in Brazil” by Natacha Roussel and Ariane Stolfi, and an afterword by Sareeta Amrute. The Special Section also includes two Image & Text pieces – “Moral Circuits” by Luis Felipe Murillo and “Postcolonial Assembly Protocols for Unnamed and Undefined Automation Projects” by Hemangini Gupta, and a Critical Perspective piece by Angela Xiao Wu, “Chinese Computing and Computing China as Global Knowledge Production.”

This issue of Catalyst also includes a Critical Perspective by Lindsay Weinberg, “Feminist Research Ethics and Student Privacy in the Age of AI.” The issue features two Lab Meetings. The first, “Resisting and Remaking Sex in the Petri Dish, the Clinic, and on the Track,” is a conversation offered by the interdisciplinary scholars Madeleine Pape, J.R. Latham, Katrina Karkazis, and Stacey Ritz on how to promote more dynamic and just enactments of ‘sex’ in policy and practice. The second, “Coalition-Making and the Practice of Feminist STS in the time of COVID-19” is a collaborative piece on thinking about feminist coalitional practices and feminist STS during a pandemic written by Hannah Fitsch, Rebecca Jordan-Young, Anelis Kaiser Trujillo, Cynthia Kraus, Deboleena Roy, and Sigrid Schmitz.

The Fall 2020 issue of Catalyst includes six Original Research articles including “Tricky Tools for Feminist Struggle: Sex Ratios as Indicators of the Status of Women and Girls” by Rajani Bhatia, “Redistribution and Rekognition: A Feminist Critique of Algorithmic Fairness” by Sarah Myers West, “The Science Underground: Mycology as a Queer Discipline” by Patricia Kaishian and Hasmik Djoulakian, “Trust/Distrust in Multi-disciplinary Collaboration: Some Feminist Reflections,” by Mary Leighton and Liz Roberts, and “Medicalization and Naturalization: Understanding Abortion as a Naturecultural Phenomenon” by Derek P. Siegel.

The issue concludes with six book reviews of recent noteworthy books. Angela Okune reviews Crystal Biruk’s “Cooking Data: Culture and Politics in an African Research World,” Sophie Chao reviews María Puig de la Bellacasa’s “Matters of Care: Speculative Ethics in More Than Human Worlds,” Tony Wei Ling reviews Toby Beauchamp’s “Going Stealth: Transgender Politics and U.S. Surveillance Practices,” Kelsey Kim reviews Andrea Ballestero’a “A Future History of Water,” Michelle Charette reviews George Estreich’s “Fables and Futures: Biotechnology, Disability, and the Stories We Tell Ourselves,” and Carole McCann jointly reviews Jade S. Sasser’s “Infertile Ground: Population Control and Women’s Rights in the Era of Climate Change,” and Rajani Bhatia’s “Gender Before Birth: Sex Selection in a Transnational Context.”

Catalyst is an online, juried journal that expands the feminist and critical intellectual legacies of science and technology studies into theory-intensive research, critique, and practice. Catalyst is inviting submissions of papers and media work, as well as proposals for future special sections or critical perspective discussions. Please direct any questions to
