THATCamp Feminisms South: Bringing together Feminism, Technology, and the Humanities
THATCamp Feminisms South is a free “unconference” for anyone working at the intersection of feminism, the humanities, and technology. It will be held at Emory University's Digital Scholarship Commons on March 15-16, 2013. People of all professions and skill levels are welcome.
THATCamp Feminisms will provide a space for participatory learning through discussion, skills-based workshops, and on-the-spot experimentation. We hope to inject critical conversations about gender and race into the digital humanities, which has been criticized as mostly white and male-dominated.
Because THATCamp is an “unconference,” our participants will determine the ground we cover. Depending on your interests, we may hold sessions on issues in digital scholarship, pedagogy, curation, software demos, or training sessions. In other words, you won’t present formal talks, papers, or panels. Instead, you’ll share your ideas for potential THATCamp sessions prior to the Camp. At the start of the event, we’ll collectively agree on which conversations will take place.
The brief application is available at http://feminismssouth2013.thatcamp.org/register/. Registration is open now, and the deadline is March 4, 2013.
Please email email@example.com with any questions, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/THTCmpFeminisms). We look forward to hearing from you!
