Friday Panels
FemTechNet’s conference on Feminist Pedagogy, Technology, and Transdisciplinarity begins with four panels on Friday, which introduces the DOCC, explores issues of labor, and pedagogical possibilities through mapping and activism.

Saturday Workshops
On Saturday we will be making and working together in workshops on feminist mapping, writing, wikistorming, exquisite engendering, and hACTIVISM. The purpose of the workshops is to experience a range of DOCC pedagogical approaches based in DOCC pedagogical principles, and to engage in collaborations and create situated knowledge.

Sunday Dialogues
Sunday’s dialogues will be activated by the signal/noise performative radnote dialogue of Lynnee Denise with Marla Jaksch, followed by modulated grooves of small group discussions brought back to the full circle of participation.

Lynnee Denise
DJ Lynnée Denise is a Visiting Artist at California State University’s Pan African Studies Department
and its Chicano Studies Department. DJ Lynnée Denise is an artist and scholar who incorporates
Lynnee Deniseself-directed project based research into interactive workshops, music events and public lectures that provide the opportunity to develop an intimate relationship with under-explored topics related to the cultural history of marginalized communities. She creates multi- dimensional and multi-sensory experiences that require audiences to apply critical thinking to how the arts can hold viable solutions to social inequality. Her work is inspired by underground cultural movements, the 1980s, migration studies, theories of escape, and electronic music of the African Diaspora. With support from the Jerome Foundation, The Astrae Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Idea Capital, The BiljmAIR artist residency (Netherlands) and The Rauschenberg Artists as Activists Grant, she has been able to resource her performative research on a local, national and global level. She’s the product of the Historically Black Fisk University with a MA from the historically radical San Francisco State University Ethnic Studies Department. Her website is here
