How do young women understand and experience intimacy in the age of social media? Are their experiences qualitatively different after the millennial turn and the rapid expansion of digital technologies? What impact do these digital experiences and understanding of intimacy have on how millennial subjects experience, understand, and negotiate social relations in globalizing Asia?  

Join Sara Liao and Ruepert Jiel Dionisio Cao for the event. Liao focuses on feminist activism, digital media, and contentious politics by critically engaging with how Chinese feminists’ use of digital media for civic engagement and political participation to advance their agendas in the transnational public arena. Cao discusses how women and gay men use iconographies of resistance in how they construct their sexual identities on dating apps.
