The interdisciplinary graduate class of DH, Feminism, and Diversity would like to invite you to our end-of-term Symposium this coming Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.

Throughout the term, we have been exploring digital humanities debates and techniques within an intersectional framework. We are currently in the midst of developing our end-of-term projects, all of which involve some kind of hands-on component (using tools like Omeka, Twine, and Scalar as well as analytical tools), and will be giving short presentations on our work in progress on our final day of class. We’re pleased to present a wonderful array of work in development on everything from the underground progressive music scene to new narrative forms to theory to video games. We plan to reserve a good amount of time for discussion after the presentations, and we would love to have you join us!

Where: MacKinnon 312 in the teaching wing (the THINC Lab being a bit too unpredictable in terms of noise for us to risk it, sadly)
When: April 5th, 3 sessions between 11:30 and 2:20 (attend just one or two if that works best)
What: Presentations. Collegiality. Refreshments.

We hope to see you then!
