Feminist Digital Pedagogies in the Polar Vortex

By Sharon Irish, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

On January 22, 2014,  I arrived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, courtesy of Lisa Nakamura, for a two-day event, “Feminist Digital Pedagogies,” that she organized with colleagues at the University of Michigan. Jessie Daniels (CUNY) was not able to make it to Ann Arbor in time to give her keynote—due to storms in New York–but she did make it for a dinner with us that evening.
