Conversations in Academia

I co-founded Conversations in Academia with my colleague Haley Kragness at McMaster University. It served as a cross-disciplinary venue for discussion on various professional challenges and social issues present in the academic environment. 

 Our work was funded by a Student Proposals for Intellectual Community & Engaged Scholarship (SPICES) grant at McMaster University.  We brought in guest speakers, organized documentary screenings and held panel debates in collaboration with the McMaster University Library.  We also curated a blog with guest contributions from McMaster graduate students, around topics including: mental health, sexism in the ivory tower, and accessibility of information.  I designed all graphics.
