In the tradition of a “soft opening,” the Vibrant Lives interactive performance will be premiering October 2, 3, 4 as a pre-show event for Fall Forward, the kick-off event for the dance season at the the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, School of Film, Theater, and Dance. This is a fantastic opportunity to… More Vibrant Lives premiers!
Male colleagues whom I respect, read, think with and sometimes disagree with: it is time. Time to see gender equity (at the very least) and our much touted inclusivity be realized. As a feminist I think dissensus is necessary and disagreement can be productive. I don’t want to hide our many differences. But it is… More No More Excuses
I’ll skip the rant and get straight to the issue – can’t think of women who you might invite for keynote or other conference event? Let us help (crowdsourced list – you can add to the spreadsheet here – don’t worry about order and formatting, I’ll periodically fix). Pro-tip: the “Build a Better DH Syllabus” and… More Build a better panel: Women in DH
A post in progress…I can’t write this all now, but I tonight I’m putting in some markers and will return to these fragments in order to help me think about what I mean by a “more generous method” by thinking about who is there in that generosity and as a way of grappling with my… More Generosity and baking it in…

Our Friday “lab” sessions were exercises in interdisciplinary learning, listening, moving, and playing. The above are two stills from one of our very early movement sessions, in which Jessica, Eileen, and some of our… More In Progress: Vibrant Lives

The post follows on the summer summit held at ASU and announces the start… More A seasonal recap/forecast

As part of our ongoing effort to address antifeminist violence online, the AAFVO project team has been working on a resource list. Inevitably this will be incomplete and subject to change – nothing stays stable on the web for long. This is very much a work in progress. We welcome your input about resources we… More Internet Safety Resource List
This will be a very outline-esque post because I have three other writing deadlines in the next week, but I just can’t resist getting some of this out there for all the other curious cats. Please – if you’re interested in doing something with this story, let me know; I will happily share the data/survey… More #WhosFirst – the Facebook Icon Experiment
I’m currently somewhere 35,000 feet in the air, roughly over Kansas, making my way back home from the International Workshop on Misogyny and the Internet, aka #iwomi. When working to address violence against feminists, the very act of meeting can be both radical and dangerous. While an event in an elite setting in the U.S.… More #iwomi and feminist actions
