Every user knows the importance of the “@” symbol in internet communication. Though the symbol barely existed in Latin America before the emergence of email, Spanish-speaking feminist activists immediately claimed it to replace the awkward “o/a” used to indicate both genders in written text, discovering embedded in the internet an answer to the challenge of symbolic inclusion. In repurposing the symbol, they changed its meaning.
 
In Interpreting the Internet, Elisabeth Jay Friedman provides the first in-depth exploration of how Latin American feminist and queer activists have interpreted the internet to support their counterpublics. Aided by a global network of women and men dedicated to establishing an accessible internet, activists have developed identities, constructed communities, and honed strategies for social change. And by translating the internet into their own vernacular, they have transformed the technology itself. This book will be of interest to scholars and students in feminist and gender studies, Latin American studies, media studies, and political science, as well as anyone curious about the ways in which the internet shapes our lives.

Review
"A grounded and well thought-out book. It is essential reading to anyone new to feminist counterpublics in Latin America, and I suspect to many feminist activists who may want to contextualise the work they do online." Gender & IT

From the Inside Flap
"Elisabeth Jay Friedman has gifted us with a fascinating and wonderfully insightful account of the internet's transformative utilization in Latin America. The rigorous sociomaterial analysis that she brings convincingly demonstrates and accounts for the co-constitution of subjects, technology, and broader social contexts and power relations."--Lincoln Dahlberg, Honorary Research Fellow, University of Queensland

"Friedman's timely and engrossing study delves deeply into the relationship between social movements and digital technologies, investigating feminist and queer groups--some of them dating back to the earliest days of online networking--that took advantage of this new space that seemed to upend ideas about bodies, sociability, and activism. Lucidly and engagingly written, Interpreting the Internet examines the paradoxes and possibilities in the ever-changing digital landscape and offers a fascinating read for students, scholars, and activists alike."--Jocelyn Olcott, Associate Professor of History, Duke University
