For the next few days I will be in Edmonton, Canada for the Digital Diversity 2015 conference. (Snow and a low of 28 degrees is predicted, so think happy thoughts. I've lived in Texas for more than 20 years and am not hardy....)
The conference celebrates crucial feminist work in digital humanities and is in honor of 20 years of the Orlando Project. I want to encourage you to follow along with the twitter hashtag #digdiv2015.
The conference program reads like a who's who of those involved with early and current work of diverse dh. Susan Brown, Julia Flanders and Martha Nell Smith are presenting on their groundbreaking early projects Orlando, the Women Writer's Project, and the Dickinson Electronic Archives.
Keynotes will be given by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, “Post-Recovery: Shadowy Absences and 'Found Collectivity'”),
