Registration open: Feminists Hacking the System(s): Creation, Liberation, and Action
The Intersections, Feminism, Technology & Digital Humanities network (IFTe), convened by Prof Caroline Bassett (CDH), Dr Sharon Webb and Dr Cécile Chevalier (Sussex University), Dr Kylie Jarrett and Dr Jeneen Naji (Maynooth University) and Dr Katherine Nolan (Technological University Dublin) addresses a critical challenge in contemporary society and culture: the gender imbalance in computational practices and systems.
This challenge has deep implications for Digital Humanities (DH) practice and theorising. Our overarching objective is to ‘un-code’ gendered assumptions, question digital environments and systems, and embed intersectional feminist methods and theory within DH with a view to the creation of new DH futures.
The first event in the series, ‘Feminists Hacking the System(s): Creation, Liberation, and Action’, will be hosted by the University of Sussex. Registration is now open – we encourage you to register for all three events, but it is possible to just register for one or two, or as your timetable allows.
