What is the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop?
The Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop is an online, asynchronous, interdisciplinary, participant-driven workshop for individuals working on feminist-oriented research projects. The workshop offers an online forum where participants can exchange scholarship and ideas.


How Does it Work?
The workshop is an informal, highly-collaborative meeting where participants create and set in motion their own agendas. There is no program for the workshop and there are no presentations. Participants collaborate in small groups to exchange research projects (e.g. articles, webtexts, syllabi, proposals) for feedback and peer review.


The workshop is free and open to anyone interested in feminist research, whether they are students, professors, academics, para-academics, or non-academics.


Workshop outcomes include:

> Encourage inter- and cross-disciplinary research and collaboration
> Discuss feminist research strategies, best practices, methodologies/methods
> Promote collaborative learning and professional development
> Create a supportive space for feminist scholars to interact and network


Who Should Attend?
Anyone with an interest in feminist scholarship and research.


How Much Does it Cost?
Nothing! Participants can attend the workshop for free.


When Does it Take Place?
This year's workshop will take place Monday, June 8th through Sunday, June 14th.


Participants are also invited to attend a virtual workshop entitled "Mindful Research: A Workshop for Feminist Scholars" by Amanda Strauss, Research Librarian at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. The workshop is hosted by HASTAC and is part of the annual Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop. It is free and open to the public. You do not need to register for the Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop to attend. Additional information is forthcoming.


Where Does it Take Place?
The Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) hosts the workshop. Many thanks to HASTAC for their generous support.


What Do I Need for the Workshop?
Ideally, you will bring a work-in-progress manuscript (e.g. journal article, syllabus, dissertation chapter, webtext) to the workshop. However, you are not required to have a project to participate and can instead serve as a reader/respondent for others' work.
