The Scholars' Lab and UVa Library are hosting the Feminist Digital Humanities @ UVA: A Collaboration, to be held January 12-13 in Alderman 421. The event will focus on leaders of four different digital projects that examine a diverse range of women writers across history, and will include a day of presentation and discussion of their respective projects and reflections on the methods of studying women’s history and women’s writing with long-standing and evolving digital approaches.
The projects have theorized and reflected on the argument and scholarship that go into ontologies, editorial practice, and database and visualization designs. They share innovative ways to study networks of biographical records, including little-known early modern or eighteenth-century women writers, or all women writers associated with Britain, or women of many occupations across history, as represented circa 1830-1940.
Coffee and pastries will be available beginning at 8:30am in Alderman 421, and the first presentation will begin at 9:30am. The public is welcome to attend. Note that RSVPs are requested for those who wish to attend the second day, at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that there is sufficient food. A full schedule and more information is available here.
