FemTechNet Allied Media Conference Network Gathering

FemTechNet is an activated network of hundreds of scholars, students, and artists who work at the borders of technology, science, and feminism in a variety of fields including Science and Technology Studies, Media and Visual Studies, Art, Women’s, Queer, and Ethnic Studies. In the FemTechNet (Feminist Technology) Network Gathering we will explore how technology perpetuates existing structural inequalities and what can we do to make technologies work for us and our diverse communities. We will create a collaborative space for revealing the power relations embedded in technology, such as racial bias in tech design, systemic threats to online safety, and gender imbalances. Our goal is to review existing materials from the FemTechNet archive of videos, syllabi, and/or assignment prompts in order to formulate continued organizing goals. Our hope at the AMC is to bring people into the FemTechNet network and springboard new projects and collaborations.

Participants will walk away with a bank of successful intersectional feminist project designs, alliances with people in different geographical and institutional contexts, and supportive relationships built from face-to-face collaborations.
