The Digital Humanities Speaker Series begins again for the 2017-18 year, by welcoming digital artist Angela Washko to campus.  Washko will discuss her project “The Game: The Game 2.0,” a video game/dating simulator that she says explores “the complexity of the construction of social behaviors around dating as well as the experience of being a femme-presenting individual navigating this complicated terrain.”  Washko’s work is featured in a solo exhibit at Squeaky Wheel, from September 15 to December 9.

To learn more about this and related events, see the Digital Humanities Group site.

To learn more about Washko’s exhibit, check out Squeaky Wheel’s website.

The Digital Humanities Group thanks our friends at The Squeaky Wheel and The Department of Art at the University at Buffalo for helping organize this special opportunity, and Angela Washko thanks for coming to Buffalo to share her creation with us!

The march mobilized five million people of all backgrounds and from all seven continents in an effort to call attention to a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe and one in which the human rights and dignity of each person is protected, and the planet is safe from destruction. Grounded in the nonviolent ideology of the Civil Rights Movement, the Women’s March was the largest coordinated protest in U.S. history.
