DH Open Office Hours: Mindy Seu: "The Translation of Cyberfeminism"
On December 6, 2022, at 11am EST over Zoom, the Digital Scholarship Group and NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks will be hosting a DH Open Office Hours on in which Mindy Seu, assistant professor at the Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts, will give a presentation titled “The Translation of Cyberfeminism” based on her book Cyberfeminism Index.
In Cyberfeminism Index, hackers, scholars, artists, and activists of all regions, races and sexual orientations consider how humans might reconstruct themselves by way of technology. When learning about internet history, we are taught to focus on engineering, the military-industrial complex, and the grandfathers who created the architecture and protocol. However the internet is not only a network of cables, servers, and computers. It is an environment that shapes and is shaped by its inhabitants and their use. In this talk, the book’s editor Mindy Seu will introduce the translations across media of the multiple stages of this project.
Mindy Seu is a designer and researcher. She holds an MDes from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and BA in Design Media Arts from University of California, Los Angeles. As a fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for the Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, she created an archive of cyberfeminism. She has also been a fellow at the Internet Archive, co-organizing the Arts Track of the inaugural Decentralized Web Summit. Formerly she was a designer on 24’s Interactive Media team and the Museum of Modern Art’s in-house design studio. She has given lectures and workshops at CalArts, Parsons, Pratt, RISD, Berkeley Art Museum, and A-B-Z-TXT, among others. Seu joined the faculty of California College of the Arts in 2016, and Mason Gross School of the Arts and Yale’s School of Art in 2019.
