THATCamp Philadelphia 2016: Intersectional Feminism & The Digital Humanities

Here are my notes from this session. I was really tired by this part of the day, so I mostly sat back and listened to others lead the discussion.

  • Discussion of Wikipediathons and the work of people like Adeline Koh.
  • Wikipedia editing is a good way for students to see how inefficient representation of women and people of color is online.
  • Wikipedia not allowing primary sources can frustrate students.
  • Discussion of archiving early queer websites and a code of conduct for archiving.
  • I also brought up fanzine archiving issues and the ethics surrounding them.
