We need new hybrid practitioners: artist-theorists, programming humanists, activist-scholars; theoretical archivists, critical race coders. We need new forms of graduate and undergraduate education that hone both critical and digital literacies. We have to shake ourselves out of our small, field-based boxes so that we might take seriously the possibility that our own knowledge practices are normalized, modular, and black boxed in much the same way as the code we study in our work.

- Tara McPherson, Debates in the Digital Humanities 

Amanda Phillips is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English with an emphasis in Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her dissertation takes a vertical slice of the video games industry to look at how difference is produced and policed on multiple levels of the gamic system: discourse, hardware, software, representation, and corporate practice. Her interests more broadly are in queer, feminist, and antiracist discourses in and around technoculture, popular media, and the digital humanities.


In addition to participating in the 2010 NEH-sponsored Humanities Gaming Institute, Amanda has been a HASTAC Scholar since 2009 and hosted, in conjunction with Margaret Rhee, an online HASTAC Forum on Queer and Feminist New Media Spaces, the organization’s most-commented forum to date. She has presented at the conferences for UCLA Queer Studies, the American Studies Association, the Popular Culture Association, and the Conference on College Composition and Communication, and has participated in unconferences such as HASTAC’s Peer-to-Peer Pedagogies Workshop, THATCamp SoCal, and the Transcriptions Research Slam. Most recently, she has been involved with the #transformDH Collective's efforts to encourage and highlight critical cultural studies work in digital humanities projects.
