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.
The DH-WoGEM conversation on physical and mental disability will be rescheduled soon! Apologies for the inconvenience! Tassie Gniady will be leading a discussion of physical and mental disability in DH. Check out the notes from the last conversation on the topic, though every conversation is different depending on the interests and perspectives of the people who participate.
