This #7 issue launches the collaboration between GLAD! and the research group FÉLiCiTÉ: Online Feminism: Circulations, Translations, Publications (LabEx COMOD ; laboratoire Triangle (UMR 5206)). This collaboration takes shape in this issue with the translation of Sara Ahmed's paper "The Language of Diversity", by Noemie Grunenwald, translator and member of FÉLiCiTÉ. This translation would not have been possible without the financial support of FÉLiCiTÉ. The collaboration will be further developed through our next issue, #8, which will be dedicated to translation and feminism and co-edited by GLAD! and FÉLiCiTÉ, and by the creation of a Translation Board.

In this #7 issue, Bodies are at the core of this varia issue, with kinesic body and tactile body under scrutiny in the work of Luca Greco. S.he explores the connection between meaning, language and expression through the sense of touch. Kevin Lambert dives into tortured bodies, by analysing The Marbled Swarm, by queercore author Dennis Cooper. He discusses the discursive co-construction of monstruousness, gender and sexuality. Bodies again, with the work of the artist Elodie Grethen, straight nose, queer mouth, who critically deploys a lure of so-called IA facial recognition technology to denounce the algoritmisation of sexualities.

Interestingly, Borba and Carvalho's paper (translated by Clara Domingues) and Pérez, Barasc and Giraudo's paper both use the recent and critical notion of phonocracy and androphonocracy, as an essentialist system of articulated domination of both masculinity and  orality. While Pérez, Barasc and Giraudo oppose a joyful graphical tumult to the grammatical police, Borba and Carvalho focus on the social and political turbulences triggered by feminist semiotic interventions in schools, which disturb linguistic conventions and, therefore, everyday life at school.
Last, innervating this issue as the previous ones, feminism is also at stake with the paper of Sara Ahmed, translated by Noemie Grunenwald, to investigate how academic institutions rely on the notion of diversity to maintain the hegemony, while diversity workers negotiate strategies. Feminism also, in the reading of cards by Ophélie Naessens and Johanna Rocard, who connect feminism, art and tarot in an original interview.

Along with Daniel Elmiger's chronicle "Describing Gender", come also book reviews and PhD review.
