Ferocious Generosity

A while ago I collected a few items on my blog in preparation to write about openly feminist scholarship and thinking through what I mean when I say I am working toward a “more generous method.” At the time I was reflecting on the idea of “baked in” feminism that I first wrote about in my “Whence Feminism” piece. I was also grappling with a series of eruptions of misogyny, […]

No More Excuses

Male colleagues whom I respect, read, think with and sometimes disagree with: it is time. Time to see gender equity (at the very least) and our much touted inclusivity be realized. As a feminist I think dissensus is necessary and disagreement can be productive. I don’t want to hide our many differences. But it is time to stop behaving as if there aren’t any/enough/enough good women working in the fields […]

Build a better panel: Women in DH

I’ll skip the rant and get straight to the issue – can’t think of women who you might invite for keynote or other conference event? Let us help (crowdsourced list – you can add to the spreadsheet here – don’t worry about order and formatting, I’ll periodically fix).

The post follows on the summer summit held at ASU and announces the start of the Center for Solutions to Online Violence – a collaborative and distributed process of […]

Signal Boost – GG attacks SXSW panels on online safety, harassment, and VR.

Via Arthur Chu and with permission: “As you may know, the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin uses a crowdsourced approval method for its panels, taking into account online voting to see which proposed panels get approved. (http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/) Three panels proposed for SXSW Interactive — about gaming and interactive media — are being attacked by GamerGate right now. One of them, a panel about VR, isn’t even related to […]

Internet Safety Resource List

As part of our ongoing effort to address antifeminist violence online, the AAFVO project team has been working on a resource list. Inevitably this will be incomplete and subject to change – nothing stays stable on the web for long. This is very much a work in progress. We welcome your input about resources we should list and other places we might look. The majority of the credit for this […]
