Federica Timeto is Lecturer of Sociology of New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts, Palermo, Italy.
'Federica Timeto's outstanding book re-thinks the traditional feminist politics of representation and location, standpoint epistemologies and situated knowledges by introducing performative and technologically mediated spaces teeming with entanglements, intra-actions, interferences and diffractions. Densely theoretical, beautifully intermingled with careful readings of film, video and multimedia art, Diffractive Technospaces is an impressive contribution to new feminist cartographies of technospaces.' Tiziana Terranova, University of Naples 'L'Orientale', Italy 'Space is never a given. It is always in formation, an impasto of the like and unlike in which the work of mediation never stops. Timeto is exceptionally good at both pointing to this quality and making something of it through a concentration on information technologies as both spatial conveyors and conveyors of space. This is an important book showing once again why the non-representational turn is crucial to understanding the modern world.' Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick, UK
