The Habits of Living Conference

March 21-23.  

 

As well as a fabulous group of speakers on formal panels and a keynote by RAQS on “The Taste of Nowhere,” there will be three FEMTECH sponsored "Dialogues on Feminism and Technology," featuring: 

  • Sexuality (Kara Keeling, Faith Wilding): Friday, 1-2:20
  • Machines (Wendy Chun, Kelly Dobson): Saturday, 12-1:15
  • Race (Maria Fernandez, Lisa Nakamura): Saturday, 1:15-2:30

all facilitated by Anne Balsamo and videotaped for presentation as part of the learning experiment called: DOCC 2013 (Distributed Open Collaborative Course).

Please come join us!  We’ll also be taping these to use as part of the course next fall. I know Radhika Gajjala (my inspiration)—who is teaching the pilot course right now—will be there.
