ahorbinski: Emma Goldman, anarchist (play the red queen's game)
I'll be speaking for about half an hour (15 minutes talk, 15 minutes Q&A) about my work on the data side of the Fan Fiction and Internet Memory project under Gail De Kosnik next Wednesday at 3:00pm. If you're Berkeley-side, shoot me an email and I will send you the info.
ahorbinski: a bridge in the fog (bridge to anywhere)
I was just informed today that Gail de Kosnik and I will be heading to Toronto at the end of April to present on our data-side work on the Fan Fiction and Internet Memory project at HASTAC 2013. Canada, here I come! Believe it or not, I've never been to any other North American country, and I'm quite excited for the conference and the city. I hope to see you there! 
ahorbinski: The five elements theory in the style of the periodic table of the elements.  (teach the controversy)
A group of friends and I revolutionized the humanities, as I learned today at lunch.
ahorbinski: The five elements theory in the style of the periodic table of the elements.  (teach the controversy)
This summer I'm working for Abigail de Kosnik of UC Berkeley on a project around fan fiction and internet memory. Specifically, I'm managing a team of undergraduates doing data collection of public archives, and I'm conducting oral history interviews. We received our final approval from Berkeley's IRB this morning, and some people will have started receiving invitations to participate in these interviews from me as of about an hour ago. We have a (work-in-progress) website, and anyone I've invited who wants to know my fannish pseudonym is welcome to send me either a PM here on Dreamwidth or an email at the address on my profile - I suspect most people I've contacted are aware of my other name, but if you're not and you want to get a sense of my fannish history and background, please don't hesitate to ask.

Mostly due to time constraints, the project is currently invitation-only, and my email response will be a bit slow for the next two weeks, as I'll be traveling to Buenos Aires and Los Angeles, for fun and to present at Anime Expo, respectively. Thanks for your consideration! I'm really looking forward to our conversations.
