    Gabriele Griffin: Gender Matters: Gender and Professional Identity in the Digital Humanities

    Gender Advanced Seminar arranged by Department of Gender Studies at the School of Culture and Education, Södertörn University.

    Digital Humanities (DH) has emerged as a new field of academic employment in the past 20 years or so. Its contours, nomenclature regarding professional roles within it, as well as its place within the academy, remain contested and a subject-in-process, very differently realized and materialized in different socio-cultural contexts. One of its core interesting features is that it brings together knowledge domains many of which have conventionally been female-dominated (Humanities disciplines) with technology domains that have been regarded as male-dominated. Yet whilst there has been much research on women within technology-driven work environments in general, there has been no research on Digital Humanities as an emerging employment context, or on the impacts of gender in its formation both as workplace and as a site for professional identities.

    In this talk I draws on Nordforsk-funded 30 semi-structured interviews with DH practitioners conducted in 2017 and 2018, to explore the relation between gender and professional identity in Digital Humanities. I examine how gender, the domain formation of Digital Humanities as a materialized workplace, and professional identities within it, are embricated, and analyse the gendered complexities of the inter-relations between professional roles and hierarchies in a field characterized by what one might describe as ‘intersectionalized identities’.

    Gabriele Griffin is Professor of Gender Research at Uppsala University and from April 2016 to March 2019 Visiting Professor at the Department of Gender Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to that she held the Anniversary Chair in Women's Studies at the University of York, UK. She was co-editor of Feminist Theory (1999-2009), and is editor of the ‘Research Methods for the Arts and Humanities’ series (Edinburgh UP), co-ordinator of the Nordforsk-funded Centre of Excellence ‘Beyond the Gender Paradox’ and manages a Vinnova-funded project on ‘Female Entrepreneurs, Decent Work and Hubs’. Most recently she co-edited Body, Migration, Re/constructive Surgeries: Making the Gendered Body in a Globalized World (Routledge, 2018).
