The Archives Association of Ontario is hosting the 2021 Annual Conference virtually from May 11-14, 2021. With the theme of “Doing The Work: From Colonial Pasts to Inclusive Futures”, the 2021 conference will offer archival workers and allied professionals the opportunity to discuss areas of archival theory and practice that address racism, colonialism, and community centered approaches to history.
I have really loved being part of the conference programme committee this year and I am thrilled to see such an awesome (in my opinion) agenda come together.
Registration for this conference is now open if you’re interested in joining us in May!
In today’s episode I talk about technology blips, technology fails, and recovering from these unexpected challenges. I draw on a couple of epic fail experiences recently and talk about getting through them.
In today’s episode I’m talking about Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work, also known as EDI work, and protecting yourself from burning out while engaged in this work. This episode is based on my experience engaged in EDI work connected to gender and sexuality inclusion.
In today’s episode I’m talking about managing chronic pain, archival labour, and working from home. This episode is based on my experiences working from home since March 2020 and rooted in my pain realities, so your mileage with it may vary.
Also, part way through the episode one of my cats decided to chow down near where I was recording. If you hear a weird noise, that’s what is causing it. Cats are fun.
On February 18th at noon ET Skylee-Storm Hogan and I are going to be talking about artwork made by Residential School students and the implications of sharing this artwork today. Our conversation will be moderated by Maddy Bifano.
