Following McLuhan’s explorations of digital media’s eccentric temporalities and its relationships to ephemera, publics, music, and subcultures, digital media intersects with queer theories in a variety of ways. Scholars working at the interfaces of digital media, trans studies, feminism, queer theory, and queer of color critique have produced valuable insights into the roles and uses of digital media in creating and sustaining forms of queer sociality, experiences, histories, and ways of knowing. The Queer Digitality Working Group will examine queer digital cultures from a variety of perspectives to understand the role of digital media in queer people’s lives and the centrality and significance of queer participation in digital media.
