Repository of Feminist Search Strategies

H&D and Read-in host a workshop together with Alice Strete and Angeliki Diakrousi – recent graduates of XPUB about feminist strategies to searching in library catalogs and digital archives. Join us in this work session if you want to learn and exchange about the possibilities and challenges of feminist approaches to search, and how they could be applied to a concrete contexts such as a digital library catalogs.
The workshop will start with a collective mapping exercise, drawing together different experiences and possibly imaging feminist strategies to search, followed by a more focussed hands-on session in which we will work in smaller groups, further developing some of the strategies and applying them to concrete contexts and datasets. From paper-prototyping to technical examinations, the goal of the day is to imagine and test out feminist approaches to search and create a collective tool box – a repository for feminist search strategies.
