Nerd-Pride, Privilege, and Post-Privacy: Analyzing Germany’s Internet Movement from the Perspective of Intersectionality and Hegemony The „Netzbewegung“ (Internet Movement) is one of civil society’s major voices in German debates about the internet and the social impact of digitalization. Drawing on concepts of hegemony and intersectionality, this paper analyzes the movement’s political discourse. Contentions about the nerd stereotype, privileges, and the discussion of post-privacy show how social positions and inequality are inscribed into the movement’s structures of subjectivization and demands. This contentious mode of self-reflexivity implies the influence of feminist and intersectional politics on cultural spaces of the net.
