Going Public 2020


This event will now be held online on Thursday March 26th.

Being public is one of the core tenets of the University of Washington. Open scholarship and going public with our research means engaging the broader community with our work. But how do we do that? Join us online for an interactive morning of discussion and skill building around the issues of (in)equity that inform communicating our research and accessing information, within and beyond the academy.

Highlights include:

  • A keynote conversation with Nikkita Oliver
  • Short sessions highlighting topics from academic to public resources
  • Panel on diverse design.

This free interdisciplinary event is open to all: faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and community members from outside the university.
