Feminist digital research methods: A SSHRC connection grant
It’s been quite a spring. My book on creative citizenship is coming along sloooooowly, but surely (I’m very excited about the new research & elements – check back in about a year).
The Banting Fellowship has been a fabulous opportunity to build networks and connect scholarship in Toronto and elsewhere, especially at York University. The Sensorium Centre for Digital Arts & Technology has been my home, with my mentor Janine Marchessault, and at the Schulich School of Business, Joyce Zemans and Brenda Gainer.
Throughout last fall, and then in January of this year, I worked with nine other amazing scholars to develop a proposal for a SSHRC Connection Grant deadline of February 1 for the development and presentation of nine seminars on feminist digital research methods. We have started to plan an incredible lineup of speakers (which will continue at our first formal meeting at the Banff Centre in June, which the amazing Tamara Shepherd is putting together). And five universities are participating with substantial cash and in-kind contributions….. which helped enormously with the grant application. Happy to say we were successful! So glad to be moving this particular project along.
And the co-applicants and collaborators for the grant are:
- Rena Bivens
- Alison Harvey
