Storify: Worldviews Pre-Conference Event [April 16 2013]

Here is a Storify of the tweets from the Worldviews Pre-conference on April 16th.


Speculative Diction: Risk, responsibility, and public academics [July 3 2013]

This blog post addresses the way that early-career academics feel encouraged to engage in public or interactive communication, yet find that the professional assessment of these activities is still fairly low – and that the professional “risk” isn’t the same for everyone.

On July 18 2013, this piece was re-posted on the LSE Impact Blog titled “More attention should be paid to the risks facing early career researchers in encouraging wider engagement”.

Conference Presentation: Social Media – Implications for the University [May 3 2013]

I presented at this conference last Friday with Dr. Grace Pollock, Alexandra Epp, and Danielle Martak. Our presentation was titled, “The Public Intellectuals Project at McMaster University: A Case Study in Social Media Use”. Below is the preliminary version of the Prezi, which I hope to update later with a more complete version of the talk and additional resources relating to the PIP.

Conference Presentation: Minding the Gaps – PhD Students and Social Media [April 27 2013]

For HASTAC I participated by helping to create a panel with Bonnie Stewart, sava saheli singh, and Trent M. Kays. The panel was titled “Cohorts without borders: New doctoral subjects”.

I have the basic outline of my talk in a set of PowerPoint slides (I’ll possibly turn it into a better version on Prezi later on): Minding the Gaps: PhD Students & Social Media.

Conference: Worldviews 2011 – “Liveblogged” [June 16 – 18, 2011]

The blog posts listed below, from the first Worldviews conference in 2011, are very long and more in the form of notes than actual posts. I created these posts before I had taken to the practice of live-tweeting and then making Storify archives of the tweets.
