  • October 14–October 15—Feminist Publishing in the Digital Age: A Symposium
    Plenary: Peer Review as Feminist Practice
    For decades, feminist media scholars have analyzed media production, consumption, and distribution across media industries and historical periods, laying a critical, historiographical, and theoretical foundation for the scholarly work of today. We now turn these tools to our own media production—journals, books, blogs, wikis, and pedagogical media—to explore what new territories are revealed through feminist intervention into multi-modal scholarly publishing. The occasion also marks a significant milestone in the development of Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology.
