This weekend, I am off to New York City for a Scholar and Feminist Conference, Locations of Learning: Transnational Feminist Practices at Barnard College. They’ve asked presenters at a panel I am participating on to ask our community the following questions:
- What you get out of digital spaces in terms of transnational feminist collaborations?
- Stories or lessons you want to share from collaborating / sharing research, knowledge, etc. online—things you learned, challenges you encountered, etc.
- What suggestions would you give to scholars who want to use digital platforms to enhance their research collaborations, especially transnationally?
- How do you deal with barriers like language differences in online spaces, different levels of internet access, etc.?
If you’re a feminist interested in Wikipedia, Wikinews or Wikimedia, I would love to hear your responses as part of my preparation for the panel. If you want to follow the conference, the organizers are using the hashtag #sflocations as a way of following what is taking place. 🙂
