A paradox inherent to current feminist scholarship seems to have emerged: on the one hand, feminism seeks to voice and include various subjugated partly oppositional groups, but on the other hand operates within a strong Western academic tradition in the humanities of linear writing and singular, original authorship. Since this traditional concept of scholarship is strongly related to the origins of print technology and its subsequent invoking of copyright law, relevant questions become how the uprise of a new writing environment that foregrounds collaborative authorship, textual openness, decentralisation and non-fixed texts can provide a means to get out of this paradox. How can we recreate a feminist scholarship that accounts for a nomadic cyborg subjectivity?
