It's Diablogical!
A Collaborative Diablog on Feminist Pedagogy

Here are my comments on visibility. I decided to focus on exposure instead of visibility. I can’t remember if I actually wrote about exposure on any posts, but I do remember bringing it up a few times. While it isn’t the only way I want to think about visibility, it seems to fit well with […]

Well, here it is. All 439 words. Central to our arguments about accessibility and the transformative and transgressive potential of blogging and feminist pedagogy is this belief: blogging while teaching and teaching with blogs in the feminist classroom allows us to engage in feminist consciousness-raising practices in online, offline and online/offline spaces. Borrowing from Tracy […]

I see what you mean about having ultimate power! Muah ha ha! I don’t think we decided on a word count for our busting binaries or our accessibility sections that I am in charge of writing! **Imagine me sitting at my desk strumming fingers together diablogically…** I will try to keep this somewhere between over […]

As I was scrolling through a folder on my laptop, I unearthed this “ancient” (as in 2004!) essay from the NYTimes: My So-Called Blog. I haven’t read it too closely yet, but I was struck by a big quote that I found as I quickly skimmed the essay: Here’s the passage that the above image […]

If I have read my notes correctly (which, due to my incredibly messy handwriting, might be a miracle), our section on the project should include the following: a cleaned-up version of the abstract some ideas about collaboration through dialogues/diablogs brief mention of how we are practicing what we preach–that is, because we advocate for the […]

Categories: More stuff to read | Comments Off on Does Beyond Social = blogs-as-commodities?

So I came across this article the other day from ReadWriteWeb about going beyond the social to an era of the internet of things. In this new era, the internet is not valuable because it is a great space to share information/ideas/stories and connect with others; it is valuable because it provides us with opportunities […]

So, thanks for your generous offer of your extra 11 words but I’m glad I pushed myself to revise my intro. The first one had some weird syntax things going on and so I’ve just cleaned it up a bit here. Cleaning it up also meant that I made it within our word limit (yay!) […]

Categories: More stuff to read | Comments Off on Women and Social Networking

While I don’t have much commentary to offer about this issue right now, I thought I would just post these two items that speak to the power of women in social networking and blogging. First, this article: The gender divide of influence on Twitter. Second, this tweet (which doesn’t have a link to an article): […]

Hey KCF, feel free to take my 11 leftover words (ha ha). But seriously, here’s the revised version of my intro. Here’s what I changed: made how I use blogs about my students, and not just me + added in a few sentences at the end. I will bold what I changed/added: Last summer I […]

So, I was listening to the radio today and there was this commercial that was like “your all access pass to…” and I thought about how we haven’t addressed access in this way either. Well, maybe we have a little bit in the sense that we’ve thought about how in expanding the idea of access […]

KCF and I had a very productive (and fun) day together discussing our dialogue/diablog project. We also enjoyed tea (and laughing at the elaborate descriptions of the coffee)at Angry Catfish and lunch at Bill’s Garden Chinese Gourmet. Remarkably, we also managed to find the time to create a rough sketch of our article, complete with […]

Categories: The "Finished" Product, Week 5: August 6 | Comments Off on KCF’s Introduction in 369 words!

So, not quite there on the word limit, I’m wondering if I’m trying to fit too much in here. I could maybe cut some of the second paragraph if in our “about us” section of the intro addresses some of the points I bring up here. I basically narrowed down and braided together the three […]
