Digital gender: Theory, Methodology and Practice
Workshop in HUMlab, March 12-14, 2014

About:

The workshop is a joined collaboration between HUMlab and UCGS (Umeå Centre for Gender Studies) at Umeå University, and will take place on the 12th -14th of March 2014. The workshop aims to bring together several strong research environments beyond geographical and institutional boundaries. We see this workshop as the glorious beginning of an on-going cross-disciplinary, cross-institutional, and cross-geographical collaboration with a strong focus on gender research in the digital sphere.

The event will be hosted by HUMlab at Umeå University, and will also facilitate papers delivered by scholars from geographically remote environments via technological equipment. The workshop aims to offer an opportunity for an open dialogue between scholars as well as opening new leeways for scholarly and empirical collaborations between international scholars, and institutions.

Visions for Digital Gender

Our long-term plan is to create a series of workshops on gender, informed by design and technology. Furthermore, the project aims to expand beyond scholarly dissemination by taking into consideration activism and current debates on social equality with the purpose to inform digital commerce and industry.

Digital gender: Theory, Methodology and Practice is made possible through generous support from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ).
