Event Production

I’ve planned events as large as annual conferences with 250 guests and as intimate as 8-person workshops. Read more about the workshops I have designed here.

Scroll on for information about larger scale events I’ve put together, either solo or with colleagues and friends.

Upcoming Events

I’ve got an idea in the works for METRO’s Symposia Series. Check back for more info.

Past Events

(Mis)informed: Propaganda, Disinformation, Misinformation, and Our Culture
Symposia Series, June 2018, METRO Library Council

We investigated the (social) media environment that allows incorrect information to thrive, sought a better understanding of the actors behind these events, and waxed philosophical about the state of counterfeit information and what it foreshadows about the library, archives, and museums community.

A complete playlist is available on YouTube. Here’s our morning keynote:

Libraries in the Context of Capitalism
Symposia Series, February 2018, METRO Library Council

What does it mean for libraries, archives, and museums to serve the public interest in a cultural environment in which profit is all-important? What pressures do we face in a money-driven world, on an institutional level and as individuals? This event was our attempt at unpacking the tensions that exist for libraries and archives as cost centers in a neoliberal economic climate.

A complete playlist is available on YouTube. Here’s our morning keynote:

Open Con NYC 2018
October 2018, Adelphi University

Whether you think of yourself as a professor, scholar, scientist, teacher, technologist, librarian, student, advocate, or administrator, OpenCon is a great way to learn about open access, open education resources, and open data. At our 2018 satellite event, participants joined and/or led workshops and presentations about everything open.

With Laura Maher from Siegel Family Foundation and Tatiana Bryant from Adelphi University, I helped plan and co-host Open Con 2018 NYC. Read more about this event here.

Race Matters Unconference
March 2017, CUNY School of Journalism

Along with April Hathcock and Julia Marden, I helped produce the Race Matters Unconference, a day long event covering topics of race, racism, whiteness, white supremacy, and the library and information profession. This event sold out at 75 participants.
