In today’s episode I’m talking about Ignite presentations, lightening talks, and Pecha Kucha presentations. How do you prep for these fast paced presentations? I also chat about where these short presentation formats fit within the conference landscape.
Over the past couple of months I have been working with History@Work affiliate editor Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan, and NCPH The Public Historian co-editor/Digital Media Editor Nicole Belolan to help pull together a month long series of posts about of archives and public history.

In honour of Orange Shirt Day today’s episode is dedicated to Residential School Survivors all across the land and to those who didn’t return home from their time at Residential School. In today’s episode I discuss the TRC’s Calls to Action and their relationship to archival practice.
Note – I made a numerical error when talking about the TRC Calls to Action, it is call number 69 not call number 60 that speaks to the operation of Library and Archives Canada.
This week I had the privilege of travelling to Thunder Bay to provide a public talk at the Thunder Bay Museum and speak with a Lakehead University archives class. Both talks focused on my work at the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre and the decades of work by the Shingwauk Survivor community.
In this episode I discuss the recent conclusion of the “Healing and Education Through Digital Access” project undertaken by the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre. I talk about community engagement, how not all information wants to be free, and online access.
I would love to hear about your experiences working with community to undertake a digitization project. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
