‘Mapping Feminists Coding Practices’, a one-day symposium at the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, is the first event of our ‘Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology: Read, Write, Code’ programme that explores feminist coding practices and the historic context of feminism and technology. It also seek to ivestigate some of the affordances and resistances of computational technology. Its aim is to develop a wider understanding of current practices and research which make positive interventions into and within computation, in its widest possible interpretation, from a feminist perspective. The event is supported by the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership and the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex.
The event is free but booking is essential.
The programme is nearly complete and so far as follow: a ‘history’ panel, a ‘coding’ panel and a panel shaped by PhD students’ recent research followed by a round table discussion and pizza & beer (also a lunch and plenty of coffee breaks). Confirmed speakers include Lucy Robinson (Sussex, history, feminism & technology), Judith Ricketts (http://lovespictures.com/), Phoenix Perry (http://phoenixperry.com/) and Shelly Knotts (https://shellyknotts.wordpress.com/), and more to be announced.
