1. The big picture: the title question_What does it mean to be an academic online?.This month's Harper’s Index reports, "Estimated amount of carbon, in metric tons, produced each year by the sending and receiving of emails: 12,000,000.” You see where I am headed.2. The present conjuncture: how have things changed, if at all, now that we are all in front of screens all day? Or given the erosion of social media under Trump, the Jan. 6 siege?3. Your personal experience as academics online.4. What are some best practices for academics online? Pitfalls to avoid? Screen sharing with examples is much encouraged. :)5. What would you recommend MTL do in terms of its internet presence? The program would truly benefit from your insights.

SO glad that Chito Ocampo’s iconic fashion sense made it into this talk

Yeah, I pretty much quit Facebook too.

Lots of followers is not good in ways I never expected. Sub 10k follower Twitter life was less stressful.

I really wish I got an MFA, but since I can’t go b/c of constraints, I’ve picked up so many tidbits of wisdom and gotten into writing workshops (VONA, Jack Jones) from Literary Twitter.

Noah’s Arc too!

Totally seconding “Twitter as public notebook”… helps protect against plagiarism or being ‘scooped,’ too (imo)

I also think that official program accounts, in their normal news-sharing functions, kind of structurally don’t get much engagement, even if they accumulate lots of followers
