Laura Mandell at Bryn Mawr College
IDHMC Director, Dr. Laura Mandell, presented a keynote address for the "Women's History in the Digital World" conference at Bryn Mawr College, March 22nd, 2013. This was the first conference for The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women's Education at Bryn Mawr College, an online repository and source of information about women's education at Bryn Mawr and beyond, and the IDHMC was delighted to be invited to this discussion of historical and contemporary issues in women's education.
Her talk, "Feminist Critique vs. Feminist Production in Digital Humanities," was mentioned in the blog for The Greenfield Digital Center here. In the keynote, Dr. Mandell discussed marginalized histories and the need for digital humanists to produce "new work that embodies criticism, rather than only publishing critiques of different work."
Video of Dr. Mandell's keynote address will be posted at the conference website soon.
