Early Career Scholars: Julia Polyck-O'Neill

As we continue our series highlighting emerging scholars, over the next three issues we will be focusing on three postdoctoral fellows affiliated with the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies and the exciting projects (academic and beyond) that they are engaged in. In this issue, we spotlight Dr. Julia Polyck-O’Neill, an artist, curator, critic, poet, and writer. She is also a SSHRC Post Doctoral Fellow, Visual Art and Art History/ Sensorium Centre for Digital Arts and Technology.

Dr. Polyck-O’Neill’s SSHRC postdoctoral project “Potential Archive” proposes an innovative theoretical and practical framework for transforming interdisciplinary artist archives. Potential Archives will challenge the conventional understandings of art historians to reconsider how Digital methods will enable artists to augment and customize their archival holdings with attributes such as narratives/narration and networked information. Her study and resulting framework should help artists plan for and prepare their future institutional archives and address emerging needs and concerns, while also assisting arts institutions in addressing such innovations. Additionally, she is currently working on an academic monograph about conceptual art and writing in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Julia is also very active on the academic and artistic scene, being a member of the 2020-2022 executive committee for the Canadian Society of Digital Humanities and maintains a research creation practice writing poetry that corresponds to explorations in her academic research. She recently had a digital chapbook published with Model Press, and is currently working on a full-length poetry manuscript.

She has conducted a recent interview as part of the SpokenWeb project, a SSHRC-supported project that brings together researchers dedicated to the discovery and preservation of sonic artifacts. She also has a forthcoming podcast Fall 2021 SpokenWeb podcast season, so stay tuned.

Events as a Knowledge Mobilization tool: Settler Vines (Sept. 23-24, 2021)

Events as a Knowledge Mobilization tool: Settler Vines (Sept. 23-24, 2021)

Events are a powerful knowledge mobilization tool. Designing a public event that is accessible, well-planned, and accounts for the new normal are some of the essential knowledge mobilization best practices. In this spotlight issue, we feature an exciting virtual conference "Settler Vines" sponsored by LA&PS Department of History, Robarts Centre, Archives of Ontario on Thursday, September 23, 2021, and Friday, September 24, 2021.

"The timing of our conference is great because the Globe and Mail published a news article about the B.C. wine industry and the impact of climate change," explained Dr. Marcel Martel, a Canadian Historian and Professor in the Department of History at York University who is also one of the co-organizers of the event.

In "Settler Vines" scholars from Australia, Brazil, France, Spain, and the United States join scholars from Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia to explore the ways in which wine has been made, marketed, and consumed in settler societies around the world since the start of the first great moment of globalization in 1850. The conference explores such themes as wine, globalization, and empire; the ways in which the wine industry changed landscapes and affected the environment and how environmental factors conditioned its development; and the impact of wine production on Indigenous peoples and the role they played in the industry. The first day of the conference will conclude with the annual Avie Bennett Historica Canada Public Lecture in Canadian History. This year's speaker, is Chief Clarence Louie (y̓ilmixʷm ki law na) of the Osoyoos Indian Band, the creators of Nk’Mip Cellars, North America's first Indigenous-owned and operated winery. Chief Louie will talk about the B.C. wine industry, the role of Indigenous people, and the impact of climate change.

Learn more about the conference on the Settler Vines website or register directly here.
