Hacktivism fuses hacking and activism indicating the use of technical
expertise, such as computer programming skills, for social activism and
political action. In other words, hacktivism is described as hacking
with a political purpose, and does not limit itself to the largely
mediatized sense of disruptive online actions.
> Hacking is often used to indicate activities related to electronics,
computer hardware and software in the spirit of DIY (Do-it-Yourself)
experimenting, testing, improving, and repairing of technological
devices. Hacking can take different forms: from computer security and
engineering to travel, radio, bike and food hacking. In a wider sense of
the word, a hacker refers to a state of mind, in which one strives to
learn how things are made by repairing, repurposing and improving them.
This more inclusive definition considers not only programmers, but also
geeky individuals.
> Despite its popularity, of all the activities around technology, hacking
is the one least visited by feminist geeks and professionals who
self-identify as women. Perhaps the lack of documentation and research
on the subject amplifies this observation. Yet learning technical skills
on one?s own or in groups, organizing or participating in discussions,
experimenting informally with hardware, software and electronics, are
all part of a feminist approach to DIY learning. With this 27th issue,
.dpi wants to give more visibility to hacktivism used by women and
feminists as a tool for change and to investigate the various forms it
can take.
> The call is open to practitioners and researchers interested in such
issues as political aspects of technology, information governance,
gender and hacking, hacktivist art, or feminist and strategic uses of
