What is feminist critical theory
Feminist Theory and Critical Media Culture Analysis
Starting points and perspectives
What potential does feminist knowledge production have for critical media research? In today's media cultures, the socially constantly contested processes of production, legitimation, but also transformation of power and domination relationships are unmistakably interwoven with media representations, technologies and media trading practices.
The volume presents pioneering contributions to feminist theory formation (by Adrienne Rich, bell hooks, Donna Haraway and Judith Butler, among others), which have been recognized by recognized authors for their importance for a socio-theoretical media research.

1. Why a book on this subject?
Reprints of feminist texts become the starting point for the discussion of challenges in contemporary media cultures: the volume promotes collective memory of feminist social theory and criticism, it shows feminist theories as part of critical media research and the emancipatory potential of feminist research - the focus is on political relevance feminist theories and their use for critical media studies.
2. What new perspectives does your book open up?
Two sources, which from the experience of feminist politics and struggles, formulated epistemological and (scientific) political interventions and inspired a power-critical questioning of social positions, processes and relationships, are assigned to each contribution. Designated authors discuss these sources - organized in the chapters: Starting points of feminist thought, public and private, experience and subjectivity and feminist politics.
3. What significance does the topic have in the current research debates?
Bringing feminist theory and critical media culture analysis together in the context of reflective science and the vision of emancipation is new and topical. It becomes clear how interventions in the field of analysis of media-cultural practices, phenomena and processes can look. This enables a look at communication and media studies male and mainstream research, in which gender-oriented and queer intersectional, postcolonial, aspects and findings are clearly neglected.
4. Who would you most like to discuss your book with?
For reading and discussion with students and doctoral candidates in media and communication studies. And with journalists and media experts interested in science policy - because since the book pursues an explicitly socially critical approach, for which feminist theory and activism are common starting points, it is particularly suitable for productive controversies in the scientific community and a public interested in media.
