#FemTechNet Ethnic Studies Committee: Recommended Panels for #2014ASA

#2014ASA is almost upon us, and I’m incredibly excited by the breadth of scholarship ahead of us this weekend. I’ve been tasked with pulling together a set of recommended panels for the FemTechNet Ethnic Studies Committee. This is coming a bit late, but see the schedule below. Hope to see you all in Los Angeles – and if not, watch the #2014ASA hashtag for realtime conference Tweeting.
