GLOSSARY

GLOSSARY: A Critical Vocabulary

Over the course of this project, we will create, add, and amend a working critical vocabulary. This vocabulary will help us professionalize and equip ourselves with a glossary of practical terms for use in digital spaces as well as the fields of gender and food studies. A second, more subversive goal, is for this vocabulary to help normalize the highly specialized jargon of the digital world into a usable folksonomy. 

Below is a selection of the terms we aim to cover. Throughout the course, we will collaborate to add to these lists and decide together the best way to represent them through data visualization methods.
