Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) partners with Full Stack Feminism in Digital Humanities to host a discussion that explores how intersectional feminist thinking can be embedded into digital practices. 

As part of the collaborative actions of the Full Stack Feminism project, this talk brings together artists to discuss concerns across gender, race and class, structures of power and oppression, and digital technologies. In this way, the talk begins to enact intersectional feminism across the ‘Full Stack’: addressing how inequality is reproduced from the level of code to the level of representation. The talk will tease out these issues with invited speakers that include: Dr. El Putnam (artist-philosopher, Lecturer in Digital Media at National University Ireland Galway), Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley (multi-disciplinary artist, working predominantly with performance, animation, and video games) and Day Magee (performance-centred multimedia artist).

The event comprises artists’ presentations and panel discussion, where attendees will learn more about this two-year collaborative project that brings together artists, communities, coders, archivists and scholars, to develop digital objects, interfaces, archives, and tools that can work to amplify marginalised voices. The Full Stack Feminism in Digital Humanities’ project team will share information on their growing network, forthcoming events, and ways to get involved through calls for submissions.

This session is chaired by Katherine Nolan (artist, curator, Lecturer in Creative Digital Media, TU). The Full Stack Feminism in Digital Humanities’ project will be introduced by Jeneen Naji (Principal Investigator, Full Stack Feminism in Digital Humanities research project, and associate Professor in Digital Media, Maynooth University).

A complimentary drink for all attendees concludes talk proceedings
