Ada2We are excited to announce that the community review for Ada, Issue 8: Gender, Globalization, and the Digital, edited by Roopika Risam [@roopikarisam], has launched.

We encourage all members of the Fembot Collective to read and comment on the submissions. The formatting may still a work-in-progress, so we emphasize substantive feedback about content, argument, and scholarship will be much more helpful to authors at this stage in their writing.

If you’re new to the process or need a refresher, please see our policies. Community review will close on the June 15th, 2015; the issue will launch November 2015.

The community review process is open only to registered members of the Fembot Collective, comments will be made public, on the review site, when the issue is finalized.

If you’re not a member of the Fembot Collective, you can find details about joining the collective [here].

Remember, members of the collective, Fembot Advisory Board, and other positions do not have to have PhDs and do not need to be faculty members. They can be feminist media artists, media producers, media critics, graduate students, and undergraduates.

    I was a pioneering cyberfeminist back in the day, and, more recently, author of *Digital Prohibition: Piracy and Authorship in New Media Art* (Continuum, 2012). I’ve taught in Canada, the U.S., and the EU, and given more than 70 talks around the globe.
