Unearthed Infrastructure

Online Event

Thursday, May 6 - Friday, 7, 2021

Social, physical, and technological changes over the past year have forced us to uproot our familiar ways of working and reconfigure them in ways we never before expected. This excavation work has exposed both hidden faults and buried strengths. Now that these hidden legacies have been unearthed, now that we’ve taken everything apart and put the pieces together in new ways, how can we ensure that we lay solid groundwork going forward? 

Technology migrations, remote work and service provision, and rising social movements have all helped shine a light on areas that have been unseen, hidden, or otherwise invisible. For Scholars Portal Day this year, we want to reflect on the ways these disruptions have opened up new perspectives that can be used to strengthen our services and infrastructure as we move into an uncertain future. 

Save the Date! To prevent Zoom fatigue, we’re spreading our agenda over two partial days. Join us on May 6 and 7 to hear updates from Scholars Portal and connect with colleagues from across the province! More details on registration and agenda to follow.
