>>> CFP: CSCW 2014 Workshop: Feminism and Social Media Research
>>> CSCW has begun to publish feminist studies and to host panels that specifically address feminist issues such as gender in peer production. Building on these renewed interests on gender and social computing, we present a workshop on feminist approaches to social media research. The goals of our workshop are to identify ways to improve social media research by leveraging feminist approaches and to provide an opportunity for researchers to reflect on their practices in order to advance research methods and outcomes. Additional information about the workshop is available at http://casmlab.org/join-us/feminism-and-social-media-research-workshop-cscw-2014/.
>>> To apply to participate in this workshop, complete the form athttp://bit.ly/feminismatcscw by Nov 15. Selected participants will be notified in December. The workshop will be held Sunday, February 16.
