Bloggende Frauen

Bloggerinnen aus Europa treffen sich im Juni im englischen Leicester zu der Konferenz „Women Business Blogging“ . Nancy White, die ja hier schon häufiger zitiert wurde, schreibt dazu:

Yay, I’m so happy to see an event for women who blog/want to blog in Europe. My dream for you is that it surfaces/makes visible the community that exists. So often I hear people (particularly conference organizers) say there are no leading women bloggers in Europe. I know there are but I’m not sure there has been a lot of visibility. So you are about to make the network visible! Terrific.

Interessant ist in diesem Zusammenhang: die Mehrzahl der Stars der bibliothekarischen Blogosphäre in den USA sind Frauen. Jenny Levine, Jessamyn West, Karen G. Schneider und Karen A. Coombs sind bekannte Namen für netbib-LeserInnen. Ein neuer Stern am Himmel und ganz und gar nicht aus der Technik- sondern der Benutzungsecke: Mary Carmen Chimato mit ihrem Blog „Circ and Serve“.

Und wen gibt’s unsererseits des Atlantiks? zum Beispiel:

  1. Und dann gibt’s ja noch Anne Christensen, die uns mit ihren Beiträgen hier in netbib und im Stabi Blog erfreut ;-). Danke auch dafür.

  2. Na, sehr gern 😉 Aber dann gehören hier aber auch noch die beiden anderen netbib-Autorinnen Ingrid Strauch und Viola Voß erwähnt. Und dann ist mir noch Kirsten Heinrich von Globolibro eingefallen.

  3. If I’m understanding correctly (it has been many years since college German class, mostly to learn to read Botany journals published in German!) you see women as leading bloggers in the librarian community – as we see here in the US.

    What I found really interesting at last year’s Blogher conference here in the states was how the edublogging community was not visible to the the community that sprang up around Blogher. It was through the edublogging community I started finding connections to the librarian community. So there are issues of how we make our different sub communities visible. There is a lot of power, but it is often hidden by our silos.

    By the way, I think one of the most powerful communities helping us find our way forward with the intersection between technology and communities is the librarian bloggers. Amazing thinking AND practice experiments coming from this diverse community. I applaud you!

  4. Und da ich meinen Namen heute nun hier lese (vielen Dank!), möchte ich auch einen Hinweis auf eine Publikation, die nicht nur eine „Zielgruppe“ betrifft, geben: Der Sammelband „Zugang für Alle. Soziale Bibliotheksarbeit in Deutschland“ (Hrsg. Ben Kaden und Maxi Kindling) ist erschienen! Weitere Informationen zum Projekt gibt es hier.

  5. Nancy, thanks for your feedback! Today was „International Women’s Day“ at netbib, which is why some female guest bloggers and myself posted a few thoughts on women and technology. The library blogosphere in Europe is not as female-dominated as in the States – blogs in our area are oftentimes written collaboratively by several people – at least one of which usually is a women, however. Our discussion today focused on possible reasons for the fact that women still seem to be blogging and and discussing less then men. Anyway, I agree that conferences like Blogher or the one in Leicester are a great way to make female blogging more visible and I am looking forward to „lurk around“. And as for the general developments regarding technology and communities: Lambert Heller posted about your thoughts about librarians as community technology stewards recently here at netbib and we thought it was really exciting!
