Event: 2014 Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop 
Dates: Monday, June 16th through Sunday, June 22nd
Sign-up Deadline: Monday, May 5th
 
What is the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop?
The Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop is an online, asynchronous, interdisciplinary, participant-driven workshop for scholars and individuals working on feminist-oriented research projects. The goal of the workshop is to create an online space where participants can exchange scholarship and ideas.  
 
How Does it Work?
The workshop is an informal, highly-collaborative meeting where participants create and set in motion their own agendas. There is no program for the workshop and there are no presentations. Instead, participants collaborate in small groups to exchange research projects for feedback and peer review.
 
The workshop is free and open to anyone interested in feminist research, whether they are students, professors, academics, para-academics, or non-academics.   
 
Outcomes of the workshop include:
 
  • Fostering working relationships among feminist researchers and scholars
  • Encouraging inter- and cross-disciplinary research and collaboration
  • Discussing feminist research strategies, best practices, methodologies/methods 
  • Promoting collaborative learning and professional development 
  • Creating a supportive space for feminist scholars to interact and network
Who Should Attend?
Anyone with an interest in feminist scholarship and research.
 
How Much Does it Cost?
Nothing!  Participants can attend the workshop for free.
 
When Does it Take Place?
This year’s workshop will take place Monday, June 16th through Sunday, June 22nd.
 
Where Does it Take Place?
The Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC) hosts the workshop. Many thanks to HASTAC for their generous support.
 
What Do I Need for the Workshop?
Ideally, you will bring a working manuscript (i.e. journal article, proposal, dissertation chapter, webtext) to the workshop. However, you are not required to have a manuscript to participate and can instead serve as a reader/respondent for others' work.
