Happy International Women’s Day

It’s International Women’s Day. Last year i wrote this post about some of the women in our Dept including the wonderful Dr Kate Devlin.

This year I would like to welcome Freida Abtan to Goldsmiths. Freida will be heading up the BSc Music Computing programme and is based in both Music and Computing. In honour of International Women’s Day, Freida has brought our attention to this video by Feminist Frequency, the first installment on a series on tropes in video games. Read more here.

Finally, I want to tell you about my Women in Computing project. On the 27th March we will be offering our women applicants the opportunity to take part in a fantastic Introduction to Arduino workshop here at Goldsmiths. The workshop will be run by Sophie McDonald of MzTek. It’s going to be smashing. So check your inboxes, girls!
