ASA 2011 Digital Displays
I just got back from chairing an amazing panel I organized on women in the blogosphere at The American Studies Association (ASA) in Baltimore. entiled "Digital Displays: Women Imagining The Blogosphere as Alternative Public Spheres" sponsored by the American Studies Women’s Committee on Saturday, October 22nd. The amazing panel featured Jennifer Stover Ackerman ( SUNY Binghamton and Editor in Cheif of the sound studies blog Sounding Out!) Tanya Golash-Boza (University of Kansas, author of the blog Get a Life, Ph.D), Judy Lubin (Howard University, author of the blog Judy Lubin’s Leading Voices) and Jamie Schmidt Wagman (Saint Louis University). I hope to upload paper abstracts here soon. A great weekend and an important panel that engages digital humanities, sound studies, social networking and web activism.
