In 2019-2020 the ESRC funded 'Reanimating data: experiments with people, places and archives'. Part of the project involved staging a series of reanimations using data from interviews with young women from Manchester, conducted thirty years previously as part of the Women, Risk and AIDS Project (WRAP 1988-1990). Each reanimation involved a collaboration between young women, educators and researchers and used creative methods to explore the WRAP data and bring it to life in new ways.

'Building a Feminist Chatbot' was a colloboration with the Feminist Approaches to Computational Technology (FACT) Network, co-founded by Sharon Webb and Cecile Chevalier. Between Nov. 2019 and March 2020 FACT ran a series of workshops aimed at encouraging women to code, collectively. It was developed on the basis of coding, not for coding sake, but to develop a better understanding of how code might be develop differently. FACT recieved funds from the CHASE Doctoral Training Programme to support these workshops.
