- Conference Room
Feminist Hackerspaces, Hashtag Syllabi, Online Misogyny
This talk provides an overview of the rapidly developing field of feminist digital humanities and previews an edited collection currently in the peer-to-peer review process in the Debates in Digital Humanities series from the University of Minnesota Press. It looks at feminist hackerspaces, DH projects that respond to online misogyny and racism, hashtag syllabi, and other initiatives that emphasize the material, embodied, affective, labor-intensive, and situated character of humanities computing. Using the perspectives of feminist science and technology studies (STS), it questions the neutrality, universality, and transparency that are often assumed to be at the core of global DH efforts.
The talk will be held in the Huizinga conference room.
