What the hell was I thinking?!: poking my publications list with a sharp stick

giphy

Obviously I didn’t get that great job I was going for. It’s been a big process – emotions-wise – and a very steep emotional learning curve. I’ve cycled through all the stages of grief, because that’s what an emotionally intelligent human being does.

Somewhere in there I had a conversation (on the back of the amazing Guardian publishing win) about what does and doesn’t belong in my publications list.

This is what I submitted for the job, 247 words and 10 listings:

  • Ballard, S and Williams, A, 2015, ‘Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts 2015 Curriculum Transformation Project Pilot: CACS101 Contemporary Creative Practice; Development of Online Case Studies 2015’, Unpublished Report (submitted to UOW, December 2015).
  • Martin, C, Tattersall, K and Williams, A 2014, ‘Triple stigmas for transgender and aboriginal ‘Sistergirl’ sex workers in NSW: gathering stories from our communities to understand their intersection with evidence-based health practice and prevention of HIV’, poster presented at AIDS2014, Melbourne, Australia, 21 July, 2014.
  • 2014 Winner, Varuna Publishers’ Introduction Program, Snakes and Ladders: A memoir, selected for manuscript development by Pan McMillan
  • Williams, A 2012, ‘Gaol behind closed doors: What the media can’t show us when it comes to Home Detention’, paper presented at the University of Wollongong Crime, Cameras, Action Conference, University of Wollongong, Australia, 18 February, 2012.
  • 2012 Runner Up, Three-Minute Thesis Competition, Faculty of Creative Art, Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong
  • 2012 Panellist, Academic Integrity Workshop, Learning Carnivale, Learning Development Unit, University of Wollongong
  • Williams, A 2011, ‘Memoir as a practice of self-surveillance: our obligations as unauthorised data collectors’, paper presented to the 16th Annual Conference of the Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP 2011), Byron Bay, Australia, 23-25 November, 2011.
  • 2011 Participant, Pilot Program for Training New Casual Tutors, Conducted by Dr Joshua Lobb, Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong
  • 2011 Australian Postgraduate Award Scholarship, Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong
  • 2009 & 2008 Dean’s Merit List, Faculty of Arts, University of Wollongong
  • That’s all I included, because I thought that was all that mattered. You know, in the academic context and whatnot. After a recent conversation about myself as both primary (lived experience) and secondary (thinking in words) source, and another about me as ‘expert’, I decided to throw a few more things in there.

This is what I have now, 524 words and 24 listings:
