Tech Girls: “Save The Internet / The Internet Saves”

2014 Google Personal Democracy Fellowship

“Google and Personal Democracy Media are teaming up to offer registration and travel fellowships for women working in civic technology to the 11th annual Personal Democracy Forum, June 5-6, 2014 at NYU’s Skirball Center.

This year’s theme is “Save the Internet | The Internet Saves,” focusing on the ways people can work together to keep the Internet open for free speech and association, and how the Internet itself helps make society and civic life more open, participatory, and innovative.

For the 2014 Google PDF Fellowship, we’re looking for 15 women who are working to keep the Internet open or working on ways the Internet makes democracy stronger, or both.

To apply, take a few minutes to fill out the application form by 12 noon EST on Thursday May 1, 2014 to tell us more about yourself and how you’re thinking bigger.

Fellowships cover the full registration costs and include a meal with Googlers during the conference and possible partial travel stipends. All applicants will receive notifications regarding decisions by May 9, 2014.”

Researching Contemporary Culture – Summer Workshops 2014


Applications until until 5th May 2014

Researching Contemporary Culture is a series of summer workshops for postgraduate and early career researchers. It takes place from the 14th to 16th July 2014 at the Institute of English Studies, Senate House London.

Researching Contemporary Culture aims to help researchers in the field address an array of issues that currently define the study of contemporary culture by offering workshops and presentations on: developing the impact of research through exhibition, curation, and the championing of particular artists’/directors’/authors’ work; producing research for open access publications; balancing public engagement and research needs; using online participatory culture as a research tool; conducting sustainable research with ephemeral data.

The event will bring together specialist workshop leaders, speakers, and librarians to address these challenges through a research skills development programme of participatory workshops and advice and guidance.

Researching Contemporary Culture has evolved out of the work of the Contemporary Fiction Seminar at the Institute of English Studies, and will offer a sustainable research skills enrichment programme appropriate for the study of contemporary culture in the arts and humanities disciplines of the twenty-first century.

Speakers include: Caroline Bassett, Clare Birchall, Kieran Connell, Jeremy Gilbert, Gary Hall, Matt Hills, Roger Luckhurst, Holly Pester, Ernesto Priego, Agnes Woolley. The three workshop themes are: Public Practices, Archiving Now, and Interpretive Communities.

Researching Contemporary Culture is supported by an AHRC Collaborative Skills Award; with additional support from the University of Birmingham, Birkbeck, University of London, and the Institute of English Studies, University of London; it is organised by Dr Zara Dinnen (University of Birmingham) and Dr Tony Venezia (Birkbeck, University of London), conveners of the Contemporary Fiction Seminar.
