Questionnaire for the mapping of feminist* activities and initiatives
The Centre of New Media & Feminist Public Practices has developed a questionnaire as part of the research and mapping of feminist, female*, LGBTQI and queer femininities* groups that are active in Greece. The aim of this questionnaire is to create a relational archive that records the activities and practices of these groups. It is important for the research to contribute not only to a mapping of these practices but also to the interconnection of autonomous practices that already exist in the feminist cultural field.
The questions that the groups are asked to answer develop in three directions: (1) their self-representation as a group, (2) the (self)determinism in the language of gender-studies, and (3) possible encounters and interconnections with other initiatives.
In the first part of the questionnaire, the groups are asked to describe their points of departure and discuss their declarations through the ways that they define their practice. They are also asked to describe the terms under which they assembled in the first place, as well as how they deal with the sustainability of the team and its activities. Finally, they are asked to point their relation with other relevant initiatives and their practices, particularly in the context of new media technologies and their online presence.
The second part of the questionnaire focuses on matters of language. The groups are invited to co-create a glossary and suggest terms and interpretations that are critical for their practice as well as the contemporary gender and feminist* movements.
Finally, in the third part of the questionnaire, the participants are asked to suggest possible points of encounter with the Centre as well as with other initiatives that could be part of this mapping process and this network of questions.
