FACT///.Mapping Feminists Coding Practices Symposium

Wednesday 20 November 10:00 until 18:00
Sussex Humanities Lab, Silverstone Building SB211, University of Sussex
Part of the series: Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology: Read, Write, Code

‘Mapping Feminists Coding Practices’, a one-day symposium at the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, is the first event of our ‘Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology: Read, Write, Code’ programme that explores feminist coding practices and the historic context of feminism and technology. It also seek to investigate some of the affordances and resistances of computational technology. Its aim is to develop a wider understanding of current practices and research which make positive interventions into and within computation, in its widest possible interpretation, from a feminist perspective. The event is supported by the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership and the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex.

Places are free but limited, see EventBrite for booking.

This event is part of the ‘Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology: Read, Write, Code’ programme,  co-led and co-organised by Dr Cécile Chevalier and Dr Sharon Webb as part of the Feminist Approaches to Technology the network, known as FACT///. .

FACT///.network was born from a desire to form and support a community around issues related to representation, diversity and inclusion within the broad area of computational practices (e.g. coders, DIY coders, programmers) and thinking. It seeks to create an active network and community that supports and encourage alternative demographics in current digital spaces, environments and practices from which computational thinking is made possible.
