Barnard joins The Humanities And Technology Camp movement of informal, collaborative “unconferences” dedicated to exploring innovation in the digital humanities. We will help to build the strand that focuses on feminist interventions. Bringing together faculty, students, information professionals and activists from across the Northeast, THATCamp Feminisms will delve into both the technical and the theoretical questions central to the use of technology in the humanities—from how to utilize text mining or redesign the way information is communicated, to the ethical implications of digitizing archives and what it means to have assignments, classroom discussions or lectures online.
THATCamp Feminisms will provide a space for participatory learning at the intersection of feminism, academia and new media through discussion, skillsbased workshops, and on the spot experimentation. People of all professions and skill levels are welcome. Co-sponsored by The Barnard Library and THATCamp Theory.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Venue is wheelchair accessible.
