Digital Methods, Cultural Politics and Feminist Approaches: A One -  
Day Graduate Conference

Monday 5 July 2010

University of Sussex (Brighton, England),
School of Media Film and Music, Doctoral School, Centre for Digital  
Material Culture

Research in the humanities and social sciences has increasingly  
incorporated visual media and digital methodologies. At the same  
time, relatively little attention has been accorded to the way in  
which feminist approaches to science and technology have informed the  
research process by contributing to discussions of private and  
public, materiality, network cultures and identity.

This one-day conference aims to examine this emerging field in the  
intersection of digital  methods, cultural politics and feminist  
theory. The conference hopes to bring together Doctoral students as  
well as early career researchers working in media and cultural  
studies, gender studies, digital media, feminist science and  
technology studies, and queer studies.

Themes of discussion might include:

-Digital methods and visual media in the research of political  
-Feminist approaches to researching science, culture and technology.
-Internet research ethics, feminist ethics and research.
-The concepts of public and private.
-Epistemological and ontological issues in STS and material feminisms.
-Actor Network Theory, media studies and Feminism.
-Notions of difference and identity in digital networks.
-Information flows and the problem of representation.
-Gender, biological and information technologies.
-Science, technology and social change

We invite submissions of abstracts for 20-minute individual papers.

Please send your abstracts of approximately 300 words by 1st June  
2010 to a.fotopoulou at sussex.ac.uk.
