Bodies of Information: Feminist Debates in Digital Humanities

I’m delighted that we’ve reached the stage where we are sending out the full manuscript for review and beginning the peer-to-peer review process for the newest volume in the Debates in DH series: Bodies of Information. On a day when there is continuing bad news from 45’s administration, including the reprehensible effort to cut food…

Doing not Being a Book

NB: This is the written work and slide images from a talk I gave as part of the fabulous Yale Book History Seminar this weekend. Thank you to the amazing organizers for a really wonderful event. We were given provocations/prompts and asked to speak for about 20 mins. I think the most compelling part is the…

Let us help (crowdsourced list – you can add to the spreadsheet here – don’t worry about order and formatting, I’ll periodically fix). Pro-tip: the “Build a Better DH Syllabus” and…

Build a better DH syllabus

Prompted by a discussion on twitter (ht to Whitney Trettien and Daniel Powell) today (2/18/2015) about the inexcusable absence of women’s work from DH syllabi, I’m creating a space for collecting resources (the initial set up is derived from the DHSI course on Feminist DH that I teach each year with Liz Losh – if…

Addressing Anti-Feminist Violence Online

Too many people have regular and sustained experiences of violence, including efforts to shut down participation in work, civic engagement, and social interaction.
