Welcome to Collaborations in Feminism and Technology!



Exploring the intersections of feminism, technology and culture.

This course is the foundation for a DOCC--Distributed Online Collaborative Course.

A DOCC is a collection of NODAL courses which could be a course at an educational institution or at a community location.

Students who enroll in institutional courses receive credit for participating in the DOCC nodal course.

Self-directed learners do not receive educational credit for participating in the DOCC.
