Women’s History in the Digital World 2015, the second conference of The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education, will be held on the campus of Bryn Mawr College on May 21 and 22, 2015. We will bring together experts, novices, and all those in between to share insights, lessons, and resources for the many projects emerging at the crossroads of history, the digital humanities, and women’s and gender studies. Continuing a conversation begun at our inaugural meeting in 2013, the conference will feature the work of librarians and archivists, faculty, students, independent scholars, and other stakeholders in the development of women’s and gender histories within digital scholarship.
On Thursday, May 21, the conference will feature a keynote address by Claire Bond Potter, Professor of History and Co-Director of the Humanities Action Lab at The New School for Public Engagement. Her talk, "Putting the Humanities In Action: Why We Are All Digital Humanists, and Why That Needs to Be A Feminist Project," will be followed by a joint reception with the Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Conference. Panel sessions will be scheduled during the afternoon of Thursday, May 21 and throughout the day Friday, May 22; a project showcase and digital lab will offer additional opportunities for unstructured conversations on Friday.
