    Hi all,

    *Dr. Lauren F. Klein’s *DHSITE keynote lecture* “**Data Feminism in
    Action” *is free and open to the public

    What is data feminism? How is feminist thinking being incorporated
    into data-driven work? How are scholars in the humanities, in particular,
    bringing together data science, data visualization, and feminist theory in
    their research? Join us on zoom for a keynote lecture on these and other
    topics on Friday May 27 13:00EST.

    *Data Feminism in Action*
    *Dr. Lauren F. Klein*

    Date: Friday, May 27

    Time: 13:00 to 14:30 EST

    Language of presentation: English

    This is a virtual presentation

    Drawing from her recent book, *Data Feminism* (MIT Press), coauthored with
    Catherine D’Ignazio, Klein will present a set of principles for doing data
    science that are informed by the past several decades of intersectional
    feminist activism and critical thought. In order to illustrate these
    principles, as well as some of the ways that scholars have begun to put
    them into action, she will discuss a range of recent research projects
    including several of her own: 1) a thematic analysis of a large corpus of
    nineteenth-century newspapers that reveals the invisible labor of women
    newspaper editors; 2) the development of a model of lexical semantic change
    that, when combined with network analysis, tells a new story about Black
    activism in the nineteenth-century United States; and 3) an interactive
    book on the history of data visualization that shows how questions of
    politics have been present in the field since its start. Taken together,
    these examples demonstrate how feminist thinking can be operationalized
    into more ethical, more intentional, and more capacious data practices,
    in the digital humanities and beyond.
