The yacking at THATCamp #transformDH, however, was centered around hacking the technologies of academia: institutional hierarchies, funding applications, underequipped classrooms, peer review, and more. These might not immediately be recognizable as “technologies” in the THATCamp sense, but the skills necessary to master them are elusive, particularly for the underrepresented groups of people who are drawn to the #transformDH community. These sessions more than “mere” conversations about how the structures of academia frustrate social justice work in academia: they are training and strategy sessions for how to use the resources available to us to do the work that is necessary for meaningful transformation.

Just wanted to give a quick update about a project I have launched in conjunction with Josef Nguyen, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of English at UC Davis. Last Thursday, we hosted the first of a series of workshops called GameCamp! by ModLab, a year-long game design camp for students, faculty, and staff at UC Davis. We’ve designed the workshops to accommodate those who have little to no programming experience, in the hopes that it will encourage people new to video games to try their hand. In May, we will… Read more GameCamp! by ModLab →
