Ongoing Challenges: Paper Writing and Committee Work
During the month of December I am participating in #reverb14 as a means of getting my writing habits back on track. I will be altering the prompts as needed to fit within the scope of this blog. Prompt: Challenges. What did you wrestle with in 2014? What did you learn? What challenges do you foresee in 2015?
This past year I wrestled with how to turn down great projects that I simply didn’t have time to do justice to. In 2015 I foresee a few new challenges including:
- Finalizing a paper on sports images and residential school archives. This was one of the few projects I took on part way through 2014, as it draws directly on a lot of the work I’ve done with the Rev Father William Maurice fonds in the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre.
- I’m continuing to be part of a couple of public history committees and part of a conference organizing committee. There will be lots of planning and implementation work in the next year relating to those commitments.
- I will be returning to work in June 2015 after taking seven months off as maternity leave. This will be another huge life/work adjustment.
