The Less Obvious Conference Checklist
This is a checklist for conference organisers of less obvious things. It’s easy will remember to book a venue, look for speakers and sell the tickets, but you could overlook many small things that can help your conference stand out. I mainly compiled this list from my own experience and from what I’ve seen other conferences do. So although I compiled the list, many recommendations are the result of hard work of others. See the AUTHORS file for a more extensive attribution.

This is not a checklist of things you must do in order for your conference to be any good. Or a list of requirements for me to do something for your conference. Consider this more as a list of actionable and practical suggestions to help us make better conferences. Don’t feel bad if there are many that you can't do: I don’t know of a single conference that follows every suggestion from this list - not even the ones I organise myself.

Hold on. Does social media use really affect kids?
"Many scholars have been critical of efforts to use "addiction" terminology. UNICEF recently cautioned against using "addiction" language when discussing the use of technology by youth. Therefore, addiction talk is fanning fears over a concept that has no scholarly consensus."

Victor White (priest) - Wikipedia
Victor Francis White (1902–1960) was an English Dominican priest who corresponded and collaborated with Carl Gustav Jung. He was initially deeply attracted to Jung's psychology, but when Jung's Answer to Job was published in English, he gave it a very critical review. White's works include Soul and Psyche and God and the Unconscious. Jung and White enjoyed a series of correspondence, and Jung was so impressed with some of White's ideas that he invited White to his retreat house at Bollingen, where only Jung's very close friends were allowed.[1] The correspondence between Jung and White has been published by Lammers and Cunningham (2007). While White was a great admirer of Jung, he was at times very critical of Jung. For example, he criticised Jung's essay "On the Self", and accused Jung of being too bound to a Manichaean dualism. He was also somewhat critical of Jung's Kantianism. At the same time, Jung was quite critical of White, for example, over his commitment to the doctrine of "privatio boni" as means of understanding the problem of evil.

"Though suicide prevalence has increased in the last few years, this does not seem to track well with social media use. Recent increases in suicide are not limited to youth using social media. Almost all age categories have seen a rise in suicide, suggesting that larger structural elements in society are at fault."

"Dr. Andrew Przybylski accessed the same dataset used by Dr. Twenge and said: "Based on that same data set, eating potatoes has the exact same negative effect on depression. The negative impact of listening to music is 13 times larger than the effect of social media." But we don't seem to be seeing those same headlines about the harmful effects of potatoes on today's youth."

Hold on. Does social media use really affect kids?
"Time spent on social media is actually a poor predictor of mental health. In one recent study of more than 400 young adults, my colleagues Chloe Berryman, Charles Negy and I found that neither time spent on social media nor the importance placed on it predicted mental health or suicide.

At the same time, some behaviors, such as "vaguebooking" (seeking attention through vaguely alarming posts) did serve as a red flag for suicidal thoughts."

‘We had Marx, they had Pauline’: left organising in poor communities | Overland literary journal
Here it is, then: the challenge of all those opinion pieces. How do you win over the person who never had Marx, but does have Pauline? A shop owner in Woodridge called Feargal up after seeing an APN flyer about the cashless welfare card. She asked him to bring a petition to her shop, so she could collect signatures. ‘I don’t want this cashless card,’ she told him, ‘because it’ll mean that all the Aboriginals are going to steal from my shop!’

It’s the kind of racist statement that awakens, for many of us, the instinct to scold. But while ‘calling out’ someone’s racism feels good (or at least righteous) in the moment, it’s highly unlikely to change their mind. ‘You need to create something people want to buy into,’ says Feargal, ‘and people don’t want to buy into being made to feel like dirt. They’re already made to feel like dirt because they’re poor.’ Instead, the APN emphasises common interests: ‘You focus on the fact that it’s about welfare, and in the end, we’re all connected. What hurts one, hurts all.’ Starting from this position of commonality, they find, is a far more effective avenue for challenging people’s views on race. When people complain to APN organisers about ‘the Muslims’, their tactic is to articulate a common enemy: ‘Are the Muslims cutting your Centrelink payments? Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott and all that lot – are they Muslims? No, and that’s who’s cutting your payments off!’

This is a strategy open to heavy criticism from a Left preoccupied with prejudice and privilege. The Woodridge shop owner, for instance, was not made to confront her own racism. She didn’t consider the colonisation and dispossession that Aboriginal people have undergone for centuries, and still undergo today. But she was, crucially I think, prompted to recognise an instance in which her interests were aligned with theirs. In doing so, she took the first step toward what we might call solidarity with Aboriginal people, with migrants and asylum seekers, with all those dismissed as burdens on society. Everything else grows from there.
