Digital Scholarship in a Time of Precarity

DPL 2020 Tracks Oct 03, 2020

This track will be a hands-on exploration of the systems and practices shaping the direction(s) of scholarship in a time of increasing audit culture and precarity. Aimed at higher education workers interested in building together towards more open and sustainable systems of labour, research, teaching, and service, this track will introduce thinking tools and digital tools for participants to apply to their own professional contexts.

The track will centre around a series of systemic issues in contemporary scholarship using experiential learning methods. Challenges may include labour insecurity in an era of increasing public scrutiny, the growth of audit practices and surveillance technologies, knowledge abundance, the enclosure of scholarly communications, misinformation, the ever-troublesome pursuit of equity, and the prestige economy of higher ed. Based in the concepts of reflective practice and participatory culture, the course will support participants in designing critical liberatory responses, building digital presence that empowers, and coming to a deeper understanding of the systems currently in tension in our scholarly information ecosystem.
