HOW ARE YOU?: #Sergina’s Live Participatory Soap Opera, 8 June 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
#Sergina’s Live Participatory Soap Opera about Wrestling with Wellbeing in the Digital Age. #SERGINA is a multi-bodied, border-straddling drag princess who sings songs about love, lust and loneliness in a time of digitalism. She performs in one place or in many, on the screen and off it, to and with people she can see and people she can’t. Her identity is up for grabs, transferable and viral. #Sergina first came out for parties in Berlin in about 2009, and later in her own right, performing alone to start with and later with others.

Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology
Update from the inaugural FACT Network event funded by the CHASE Feminist Network in March. FACT, Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology, was born from a desire to form, and support, a community around issues related to representation, diversity and inclusion within the broad area of computational practices and thinking. It seeks to create an active network and community that supports, and encourage alternative demographics in current digital spaces, environments and practices from which computational thinking is made possible.

Report from our Sharing Research and Practice Event
This two-day event brought together researchers, students, practitioners, and activists from across the CHASE network and beyond whose research, pedagogy, and practice inspire forms of feminist resistance. It featured papers, discussions, workshops and round tables which have been designed to offer alternative modes of thinking and expression to those dominating within the mainstream neoliberal university.
Researching Conflict in the Humanities: Challenges, Practices and Methods
Our colleagues are running interdisciplinary student-led training designed for PhD students and Early Career Researchers in the Arts and Humanities studying conflicts from the First World War to the present, regardless of geographical location. It seeks to question the positionality of the researcher, and explore the most current methodological approaches in the study of conflict in different disciplines.
- On 31 May, we will look at feminist methodologies to study conflicts, with the excellent Dr Azadeh Fatehrad.
- On 11 June, we will delve into the fascinating but not unproblematic relationship between activism and scholarship.
