The Fembot Collective was founded in 2009 at the University of Oregon. The Collective’s intent was to create an open access, open source publishing platform for feminist research on gender, new media, and technology. It launched its journal, Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology in November 2012. The infrastructure for Fembot and Ada was supported by numerous small grants from the University of Oregon, as well as graduate student funding from the University of Oregon and Bowling Green State University.
Today, the Fembot Collective has grown to include feminist media scholars, artists, producers, writers, and activists from around the world. The Collective currently has 561 members, from 24 countries. Since its launch, Ada has published 80 peer-reviewed articles.
Carol Stabile, the Collective’s managing editor will move to the Women’s Studies Department at the University of Maryland in July 2017, which will provide the Fembot Collective with a new institutional home and additional support.
