Last month I took part in the inaugural Women’s History in the Digital World (#WHDigWrld) conference of The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education at Bryn Mawr College.
My paper, On Equal Terms? The Stakes of Archiving Women’s and LGBT History in the Digital Era, and many others have been archived in the Greenfield Digital Center repository and can be viewed online here. I’m looking forward to revisiting the many of the talks:
- “Feminist Critique vs. Feminist Production in Digital Humanities,” keynote address by Laura Mandell (Texas A&M University),
- “New Challenges in Digital History: Sharing Women’s History on Wikipedia,” Mia Ridge (Open University),
- “Asking Big Questions with Digital Tools,” Michelle Moravec (Rosemont College), and
- “Mining Hymns: Exploring Gendered Patterns in Religious Language,” Jeri Wieringa (George Mason University).
Michelle Moravec created a Storify to archive conference tweets and reflected on our weekend at her blog, History in the City.
