Just a shout-out to Group 4! I've created a Google Docs folder so you can post anything you'd like us to read there! You'll see a note from me and a link to the folder in your e-mail inbox.
Greetings FSDW participants!
Greetings from Chattanooga, Tennessee! I'm a cultural studies-oriented women's, gender, and sexuality studies practitioner who burned out going down with her ship in New Orelans in the aftermath of the Katrina event. During 1996-2010, I coordinated educational programs including instituting a feminist participatory media collaboratory (Sophielab) at the late Newcomb College Center for Research on Women of Tulane University.
Hello! I've just recently joined HASTAC, and I am fortunate to be posting my first blog entries here just as the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop is beginning. I'm really glad to see a feminist scholars collaborative well underway!
Greetings, HASTAC community!
I am the author of The Cultural Logic of Computation (Harvard UP, 2009), which applies cultural studies & critical theory methods to core topics in the theory, philosophy, and practice of computation, and develops a variety of arguments to show how computation functions in our society to produce and exacerbate hierarchies of race, class, gender, and power, despite the tremendous amount of rhetoric suggesting that computerization "democratizes," flattens, and decentralizes.
My name is Heather Pleasants: I'm the Director of Community Education in the Center for Community-Based Partnerships. I'm currently working on an edited book with Dana E.
My name is Benjamin Powell and I am an assistant professor of speech, communications, and theatre at CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College in NYC. I have a Ph.D. in communication studies with a performance studies emphasis from Louisiana State University. My research focuses on performance of everyday life, digital storytelling and adaptation, and theories of difference. My pedagogy and research are heavily informed by feminism and feminist practices.
