FACT///. network is delighted to announce a call for papers for ‘FACT///.Mapping Feminists Coding Practices’, a one day symposium, on 20th November at the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex. This event is part of the ‘Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology: Read, Write, Code’ programme, supported by the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership and the Sussex Humanities Lab. 

PhD researchers (theory, practice-based, practice-led) are invited to submit an abstract, which responds to affordances and resistances related to representation and/or engagement (e.g. diversity, inclusion) within the broad area of computational practices and thinking. How can these be understood as feminist approaches to computational technology? We mean “computational” in its widest possible interpretation.

FACT///.network seeks to promote dialogues, collaborations and support diverse voices in transdisciplinary feminist computational thinking and environments (www.fact.network).

We welcome traditional paper style delivery and to other presentation styles, all limited to 15 minutes per paper/presentation. 

Please send 300 word abstract and title, along with the author(s) biography (up to 150 words), your affiliation, and contact details by end of day Monday 14th October 2019 to sharon.webb@sussex.ac.uk and  C.Chevalier@sussex.ac.uk. Any queries can also be directed to Sharon and Cécile. Applicants will be notified by Friday 18th October.
