"Invisible labor in 2021 - changes to the workload and balancing new labor demands"

Given that it’s been about a year since the onset of the pandemic in the United States, we’d like to chat with our Digital Library Pedagogy community about how invisible labor (and labor in general) has shifted during this time when many people’s format of working has changed dramatically. Now that many of us have wrangled with new kinds of labor (e.g. balancing childcare with work, connecting remotely, separating work and self-care, etc.), it’s time to discuss the strategies and advice the community has for managing invisible labor. The host is the new Twitter chat coordinator for 2021, Hillary A. H. Richardson (@hillaryAHR) of Mississippi University for Women.

The chat is at 2:00 pm EST on February 16th, 2021. Questions will be tweeted from the @CLIRDLF handle. Join in and follow by tweeting with and looking at the #DLFteach hashtag. Questions? Contact the #DLFteach coordinator. All are welcome!
