Lindsay C. Sheppard

PhD Student, Sociology, York University, Canada

Lindsay C. Sheppard is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at York University. She has a MA in Child and Youth Studies from Brock University. Lindsay is curious about questions of gender, age, collective feminist identities, and digital feminism. Using a feminist posthuman framework, her proposed dissertation will explore girls' feminist activism on Instagram, to better understand the materialities and discourses that shape the possibilities for digital feminism and feminist identities. Lindsay's dissertation aims to complicate binaries of online/offline, activism/slacktivism, and individual/collective.
