9780822358923: Feminist Surveillance Studies

Questions of gender, race, class, and sexuality have largely been left unexamined in surveillance studies. The contributors to this field-defining collection take up these questions, and in so doing provide new directions for analyzing surveillance. They use feminist theory to expose the ways in which surveillance practices and technologies are tied to systemic forms of discrimination that serve to normalize whiteness, able-bodiedness, capitalism, and heterosexuality. The essays discuss the implications of, among others, patriarchal surveillance in colonial North America, surveillance aimed at curbing the trafficking of women and sex work, women presented as having agency in the creation of the images that display their bodies via social media, full-body airport scanners, and mainstream news media discussion of honor killings in Canada and the concomitant surveillance of Muslim bodies. Rather than rehashing arguments as to whether or not surveillance keeps the state safe, the contributors investigate what constitutes surveillance, who is scrutinized, why, and at what cost. The work fills a gap in feminist scholarship and shows that gender, race, class, and sexuality should be central to any study of surveillance.

Review:

"Surveillance cannot but be about social sorting, so it must also always be about inequalities. This book prods and provokes its readers to focus critically on those inequalities so that the study of surveillance never slips into complacency or complicity." (David Lyon, author of Identifying Citizens: ID Cards as Surveillance)

"Feminist Surveillance Studies provides a much-needed set of feminist interventions into the study of surveillance. The essays offer critically important insights into the gendered dimensions of state surveillance, vividly outline the structural inequalities designed into surveillance regimes, and provide a wealth of avenues for future research." (Kelly A. Gates author of Our Biometric Future: Facial Recognition Technology and the Culture of Surveillance)

"Remarkably intercommunicative and interdisciplinary, these essays are an important intervention in the burgeoning field of surveillance studies... Feminist Surveillance Studies is an overture that conceptualizes surveillance within an aesthetics of domination, a luxurious and galvanizing text to be deeply engaged and widely taught." (Stephanie Amon Afterimage 2016-02-01)

"Feminist Surveillance Studies offers an important intervention in surveillance studies scholarship, one that is sure to shape the discipline moving forward. It is a must-read for teachers and scholars in this area, but the diverse array of case studies makes this book relevant for updating material in an array of media studies classrooms." (Dana Schowalter Feminist Media Studies 2016-03-16)

"[A] necessary and important collection. . . . Rather than mark off a corner of scholarship as definitively feminist and definitively surveillance, Feminist Surveillance Studies asks us to rethink both, in service of more nuanced, just, and progressive critical frameworks." (Andrea Braithwaite New Media & Society 2016-08-01)

"Feminist Surveillance Studies offers an important intervention in surveillance studies scholarship, one that is sure to shape the discipline moving forward. It is a must-read for teachers and scholars in this area, but the diverse array of case studies makes this book relevant for updating material in an array of media studies classrooms." (Dana Schowalter Feminist Media Studies)

"It is testament to the structural intra-disciplinarity of Feminist Surveillance Studies that the subject categories this book is labelled with—Gender Studies, Surveillance Studies, Cultural Studies—don’t cover the half of it. These framing points are enriched by the various socio-historical contingencies presented throughout. The multiple critical connections are precisely what is so vital about the book, and a reason I would include chapters from this book on reading lists for a general new media studies course, or contemporary literary studies and visual culture courses." (Zara Dinnen New Formations 2017-02-01)

"On their own, and as a collection, the essays in Feminist Surveillance Studies offer an impressive array of empirically rich, theoretically engaged and critically-oriented contributions that should reshape the ways we do surveillance studies. Dubrofsky and Magnet are right to claim that their book will launch a new field of engagement. Feminist Surveillance Studies is a must-read for feminist and surveillance scholars alike." (Amanda Glasbeek Theoretical Criminology 2016-03-22)
