Women and Gender Minorities in Digital Humanities


DH-WoGeM provides a mailing list for discussion of issues relevant to being a woman or gender minority in digital humanities. The group also organizes "conversations" (video chats via Zoom) around specific issues, and develops white papers and other resources for advocacy.

You can join the mailing list at https://listserv.neu.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A0=DH-WOGEM.

Our next call will be Friday, September 20, 2019 at noon Eastern, 11 AM Central, 9 AM Pacific at https://stanford.zoom.us/j/665040539. Quinn Dombrowski will lead a conversation on becoming a parent in DH. Everyone interested in sharing experiences or learning from peers' experiences are welcome, whether or not you have children.
