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 “Build a Better List of Code Experts” are also great resources for this.

Transformative Justice Bibliography
The FemTechNet group recently discussed a question posed by Pitzer College student Ari Schlesinger on the topic of feminist programming – it’s a topic related to my work on feminist markup and digital architectures, so I read the discussion with interest. What follows are some of the ideas that arose in the discussion – gathered here as a way of starting a kind of bibliography. I have a previous post on Feminism and Technology that is also a bibliography. I’m also hopeful that this post will operate as a space of further discussion on the topic. Thanks for the great thinking go to the many members of FemTechNet network who contributed to the discussion – I’ve edited to make this more of a working bibliography, rather than a transcript of the conversation.
Ari’s question paraphrased: if object oriented programming reifies normative subject object theory, what would a feminist programming language look like? Are there possibilities within imperative, functional, or logical programming languages that would enable feminist programming?
Ari was already thinking about Karen Barad’s work in Posthumanist Performativity and about feminist logics.
Barad, Karen. “Posthumanist Performativity: Toward an Understanding of How Matter Comes to Matter.” Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Vol. 28, No. 3. (1 March 2003), pp. 801-831
also: Barad, Karen. Posthumanist performativity : Toward an understanding of how matter comes to matter. In Deborah Orr (ed.), Belief, Bodies, and Being: Feminist Reflections on Embodiment. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (2006).
Work and ideas that came up in the ensuing discussion:

Tara McPherson’s work on Scalar, discussed in a forthcoming article in Difference. (A talk version is here:

Information Theory from a feminist perspective (new area to explore)
Melissa Terras on the Text Encoding Initiative (markup protocols) (need the url)
I’m sure that there is more that is worth bringing into the discussion – please post a comment if you have thoughts!
You’re teaching with Wikipedia; you’re thinking about teaching with Wikipedia – either way, here’s a list of useful resources. Is there something that you’ve found particularly helpful that I should add here? Let me know and I’ll get it up ASAP.
My own post on skipping the review process (which is aimed at other audiences).
Adrianne Wadewitz’s Intro to Wikipedia video (1 hour, wonderful, shot at Pitzer College)
Adrianne Wadewitz, Anne Ellen Geller, Jon Beasley-Murray essay “Wiki-hacking: Opening up the academy with Wikipedia”
Indiana University Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning’s “Teaching with Wikipedia”
If you’re planning to do a “edit-a-thon” rather than or as part of a class, the following resources are available:
Wikipedia’s “How to run an edit-a-thon”
I’ve been working on a now forthcoming article on feminisms and digital archives (for Spring DHQ) for a couple of years now. While the article initially was going to ask if XML and XSLT (markup and transformation languages used in many digital archives) could be thought of as feminist, I ended up writing a piece that talks about how difficult that question is to even ask. There are incredibly complex social scenes in which these tools are deployed, and most work today in technology studies acknowledges the “technosocial” scene as important to theorizing a tool. But even before dealing with the scenes of tool usage, I found that I had an incredibly difficult time finding many good resources on feminisms and digital technology of the sort used in digital archives. In even the best of situations, I was using work that addressed very different kinds of technology and that presents certain challenges.
The FemTechNet list has recently been chewing over the issue of feminist technologies and tools and others have noted the relative paucity of the literature. So, in the collaborative and distributed spirit of FemTechNet, I’d like to ask for your help adding to my bibliography. This particular piece has a specific focus, but I’m interested in developing a much larger bibliography so please comment with any citations that you think are relevant to the study of feminist technology/information design/digital tools. I’ll repost an updated bibl for those who are interested.
