The conference will feature a keynote address by Claire Bond Potter (aka @TenuredRadical<>), Professor of History and Co-Director of the Humanities Action Lab at The New School for Public Engagement.

Panels will be scheduled during the day Thursday, May 21, and the morning of Friday, May 22; a projects showcase and digital lab will offer opportunities for unstructured conversation and demonstrations.We invite individual papers or full panel proposals on women's and gender history projects with a digital component, investigating the complexities of creating, managing, researching and/or teaching with digital resources and digitized materials.
