I had the fantastic opportunity to go to the first Australian Blogging Conference the week before last, the one bonus of having to cancel my Perth trip due to my child’s illness. Congratulations and many thanks to the organisers. I hope that the success of this years conference means there will be more to come, and this time longer. (Is that the sound of someone volunteering to help with next years I hear you ask? Hmmm… maybe… I’m sure I could be convinced, I know a thing or two about organising a conference, and what’s more I make a great poster and a mean t-shirt 🙂 )

Calling all Perth Cyberfeminists!

October 1, 2007 at 1:28 am (conferences and workshops, cyberfeminism) (, , , )

I am very excited to announce that CyPEC – the Australasian Summit of Cyberfeminism will be happening in Perth on the 9th of November (2007) as part of the Night’s Edge  cyberpunk extravaganza.

CyPEC will take place as a dedicated stream within the Night’s Edge program on the Saturday of the conference. Discussion panels planned so far are: Cyberfeminism 101, Becoming Frankenstein: bodies and technology, a roundtable discussion about current cyberfeminist practice, the art of subversion in feminist art, and a local cyberfeminist project showcase. In the true DIY and collaborative spirit of cyberfeminism I would also like to include some kind of hands on workshop, perhaps something inspired by my recent ANAT workshop attendance.

More panelists for the above items and suggestions for extra panels/workshops are very welcome.
