Hi friends, this is a quick note to share a few links, announcements, and reminders. Enjoy! —K
If you, like me, are having many many feelings as we approach the two year (!) anniversary of covid disruptions in the US, you will want to be part of this project. Postcards of Rage and Renewal is a collective response to the two-year anniversary of the coronavirus lockdown. It is a collaboration between the Visionary Futures Collective and the Inkcap Collective. Our goal: to collectively channel and process our outrage towards the inadequacy of the pandemic response and to build our hope for the future.
Participants will receive two stamped and addressed postcards designed by VFC/Inkcap members and printed on VFC’s brand new risograph. One postcard will be for rage. One will be for renewal.
Write on or decorate the postcards however you want, and then send them back to us. Based on what you share, we’ll be designing rituals and exhibitions of celebration, mourning, fury, and hope.
A reminder that we’ll gather on March 15 at 2pm EDT (daylight saving time is almost here, friends!) to discuss the intersections of academic freedom, political repression, and unrest—in Ukraine and elsewhere, including in the US and Canada. Many thanks to Cihan Tekay for curating a thoughtful list of readings and discussion questions.
Please register here.
Join us Friday, March 18 at 3pm EDT for a HASTAC Digital Friday featuring many of the fabulous dissertation creators whose work we share on the Next-Generation Dissertations website.
The University of Iowa and The Graduate School at Syracuse University hosted a fantastic roundtable to launch the collaborative NextGenDiss project. A video will be available soon; in the meantime, warm thanks to Jojo Karlin for the lovely sketch of participants and their ideas.
How did the alternative process help you reimagine what a dissertation could be? @katinalynn opens q&a nextgendiss.hcommons.org @612to651 @Sestima Mary Kalantzis @jmerandy @mkgold @KaySohini Ana M Rodríguez-Rodríguez #jojodoodles #visualnotes #nextgendiss pic.twitter.com/sFWLzHpPKy
