The Digital Library Federation is focusing its conference on speakers who work in the fields of Digital Humanities and libraries, as well as feminism and critical race studies. Interestingly, they are all women, a major intervention in the all-male-panelists phenomenon that is getting so much press in the news lately.
This two-day symposium, Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18, 2014, will explore the ways handwriting, print, and the body work together to make sense, intellectually and physically. Sponsored by the Department of English, University Libraries, and IDHMC, the program features plenary speakers and roundtables of ongoing work within the Texas A&M University community. Sessions are free and open to all.
