How do you find time for the projects that you are invested in but aren’t part of your job? In today’s episode I’m talking about passion projects and the work that I do off the side of my desk that brings me a lot of joy.
On November 11th at 1pm ET Kalani Adolpho, Stephen G. Krueger, and I will be participating in the Mini Rees Conversation Series and talking about the importance of gender diversity and transgender voices within the field of Library and Information Science (LIS).
In today’s episode I’m chatting about boundaries between work and home life and the struggle to maintain those boundaries during the pandemic. I talk about my home office, strategies for disconnecting and challenges of the work at home life.
This year I was able to work again with Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan Nicole Belolan to edit an Archives Month series for the History@Work blog.
This series looks at the intersection of archives, archivists, and public history in the age of COVID-19 and will be running throughout October as part of Archives Month in the United States. You can see the first post, about navigating a new community during COVID-19, by Hannah O’Daniel McCallon here.
Follow the History@Work blog to see the rest of the posts are they are released throughout October.
Hi All! I’m back with a new podcast episode, it’s a short one but in today’s episode I’m discussing grant evaluation and sitting on the other side of the funding table. I talk about grant adjudication, collaboration, and grant writing.
I’m finally able to share some super exciting news! Kalani Adolpho, Stephen G. Krueger and I are editing a book!
Tentatively titled, Trans and Gender Diverse Voices in LIS, this Library Juice Press book will center the lived experiences of trans and gender diverse people in LIS work and education. All authors and editors will be self-identified trans and gender diverse people.
This year seems to be the year for virtual conferences, online professional development, and webinars. In October I’ll be participating and presenting at a number of virtual conferences including:
I will be presenting as part of the Canadian Research and Knowledge Network (CRKN) virtual conference. My presentation, ” Community Based Access: Preserving and Sharing Indigenous Archival Materials” will be on October 13th and is part of the access and preservation week. The CRKN conference is completely virtual and free this year.
I’m super happy that I get to participate in TESS again this year. This is a fantastic conference and learning opportunity organized by eCampus Ontario. I’m going to be talking about empathy and teaching about the history of Residential Schools in virtual settings. TESS is free and runs from October 20th to 21st.
These spaces are for LGBTQ2S+ archivists to connect and meet with one another in an informal, participant-driven environment. Folks must identify as LGBTQS+ to participate.
I’m going to be acting as the moderator/facilitator for the LGBTQ2S+ spaces and would love for folks to share this with others who might find the space useful. Registration is required but the space is open to both AAO members and other archives folks.
