Greetings everyone ~ I'm delighted to see this workshop emerge and excited to participate.
A brief introduction about me and my work: Until now, most of my work has been about race and racism in various forms of media. I'm the author of White Lies (1997) and Cyber Racism (2009). Since about 2008, I've been at work on a project about feminist bloggers and race. I've published a couple of pieces about this. One a sort of theoretocal / lit review in WSQ ("Rethinking Cyberfeminism(s): Race, gender and embodiment" 2009); the other, more focused on one aspect of the data drawn from several blogging conferences, appears in the edited volume, Cyberfeminism 2.0 (2012). Here is the slide deck from a recent talk I gave 'speaking back' to the #femfuture report.
I have several, related feminist digital projects and look forward to discussing them in the workshop.
Oh, and I should situate myself. Geographically, I am in New York. Institutionally, I am a professor at CUNY - both the Graduate Center and Hunter College - in several departments (public health, sociology, environmental psychology). The multi-department appointments reflects both the unique structure of CUNY and my wide range of intellectual interests. Mostly my affiliation these days is with a large Ford-funded project I lead called JustPublics@365.
All of that institutional/affiliation stuff feels like my 'day job,' and feminist, critical race scholarship about digital media is what I do for fun. ;)
