KEYNOTE SPEAKER BROADCAST & WRITING TIME

Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop

Jenny Ungbha Korn, scholar of Identity & Media at the University of Illinois at Chicago
12:30pm-5:00pm, Monday, June 12 | The Commons
Keynote begins at 1pm
Offered by Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) and James Madison University's School of Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication

Founded in 2013, the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop (FSDW) is a biennial, online, interdisciplinary workshop for individuals working on feminist-oriented research projects. During this year’s workshop, June 12-18, participants will create and set in motion their own agendas. There is no preset program for the workshop. Rather, participants collaborate in small groups to exchange research projects (e.g., articles, webtexts, syllabi, proposals) for feedback and peer review. Small groups are designed to be interdisciplinary and to encourage feminist mentorship by bringing together scholars with varying levels of experience and expertise.

In conjunction with this year’s FSDW, The Commons will host a Keynote Speaker Viewing & Writing Time during the two FSDW keynotes. This will provide space to work on independent projects as well as to connect with other KU scholars interested in gender equity across disciplines. Space is limited. Please email joy.hyatt@ku.edu by June 9 with your name, department, and the event date. Participants should plan to bring their own devices to participate in online workshops. To accommodate diverse schedules and time zones, all peer-review activities take place asynchronously, with the exception of keynote talks and online meetings that individual peer review groups elect to set up. For more general information about the FSDW, or to participate in the peer review and submission process please click here.
