(39) What's So Radical About Librarianship? Social Justice in the Information Professions LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The first task of a radical librarian is to ask themselves two questions about their work: “Who benefits?” and “Whose perspectives and voices are being represented?” Asking these questions prompts us to confront the ways in which our work is embedded in systems of oppression and to attempt to remedy these inequities. This panel will explore how information work intersects with social justice in various contexts, including cataloging, information literacy instruction, reference, and archival description. Participants will be encouraged to contribute to the discussion and will be provided with resources for further reading and engagement.
