Digital Methods, Cultural Politics and Feminist Approaches: A One - Day
Monday 5 July 2010, University of Sussex, Media Film and Music, Centre for
Material Digital Culture & Doctoral School
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 engagement.
-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.
