“Litany for the Perpetrator: Surveillance, Cyberstalking, and Female Empowerment in the Digital Age presented as a memoir in prose and screenshots, the project examines the ways internet surveillance and cyberstalking affect women of the millennial generation. As a young arts professional who utilizes Facebook, Twitter, and other similar social networking sites, I have been unnerved by the ways they often cultivate a sense of familiarity on the part of followers, resulting in an attempted break-in, threats to my physical safety over various posts, and routine tracking of my physical location via social media, and that only constitutes a small part of my story. The essays intersperse such personal narrative with interview material, field research, statistics, and other journalistic techniques, exploring the ways that these sites exaggerate already present imbalances of power in both professional and personal contexts, but also demonstrating that this power has reclaimed by millennial women. “
