IPEd Conference 2021: Editing on the Edges

28 June - 30 June

$160 – $350

IPED’s 2021 conference theme is inspired by Hobart’s geographic location and invites the broadest interpretation. Editors deal with many edges:

  • Geographic edges: how is editing in Australia different from editing in larger population and publishing centres? How can we make use of our place at the edges of Asia and the Pacific?
  • Demographic edges: how can editors work with and for people on the edges – marginalised authors/audiences? How can we make our profession more diverse?
    • First Nations people
    • Refugees
    • People with disabilities
    • People for whom English is their second or other language
    • LGBTQIA+ people
    • People who are economically disadvantaged
  • Where is the line between edgy and offensive?
  • Technological edges: what is the role of the editor in social media?
  • Ethical edges: how do we negotiate tricky ethical points?

Having to change the conference to a virtual format is yet another example: the very edge of our comfort zones.

Whatever the edges you deal with, IPEd hopes to have something for you to learn or to share.
