CONFERENCE NEWS: Digital Diversity 2015: Writing | Feminism | CultureThe Orlando Project began in 1995. This May, the conference Digital Diversity 2015: Writing | Feminism | Culture took place in Edmonton to mark the Orlando Project’s 20th birthday and to explore ongoing advances in the fields of digital literary and cultural studies. We welcomed an international, multidisciplinary group of delegates, who participated in workshops, panels, and poster and demo sessions. The conference would not have been possible without the instrumental involvement of Dr. Kathryn Holland and Dr. Susan Brown. For more information about the conference, check out its website at digitaldiversity2015.org and follow its Twitter account @digdiv2015.
