My first time attending the Console-ing Passions conference last week was an absolute delight. Returning to an in-person conference after several years of virtual attendance felt really exciting, and meeting this incredible group of feminist and queer media researchers made the environment feel welcoming, safe, and full of possibility (in a moment where that feeling is *desperately* needed).
Big shout-outs to the conference organizers Mel Stanfill and Anastasia Salter and their team of exceptional graduate students for pulling off a fun and informative event. You all crushed it.
The abstract and talk for my conference paper, Refacing Gender in Digital Assistant Technologies, is now available online.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Calgary next year at Console-ing Passions 2023!
