Digital Feminisms and Visions of Transnational Social Justice Activism

Presiding Officer: 
Katrina Sark, University of Victoria, British Columbia
Lorely French, Pacific University

For this roundtable discussion panel, participants will be asked to prepare a very brief, five-minute presentation of their work as it pertains to digital feminisms, social justice activism, social justice pedagogy, or community engagement. In addition to these topics, other topics may include digital teaching tools (websites, blogs, geo-mapping, podcasts, videos, web-archives, etc.), digital activism and critical media, experimental pedagogy, and collaborative, inter-university projects. Presentations may reflect on theoretical contexts for intersections between these topics, or they may demonstrate actual hands-on projects that exemplify those intersections for use in teaching and research. Ideally, the panelists will come from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines, and institutions so as to attract and engage a diverse audience and demonstrate a multitude of possible ways to engage students, faculty members, campus communities, and professional organizations. After the brief introductions, we will proceed with a group discussion among panelists and audience members on transnational and digital feminisms. The goal of this roundtable session is to inspire and encourage collaborative projects on translational feminisms, engaged pedagogy, and digital innovation.
