LIS and Critical Theory Reading Group

Reading across disciplines, we will meet to discuss Library & Information Science discourse in conversation with critical theory, emphasizing intersectionality in race and culture. Our goal is to gain precision in engaging theory to explore ideas around reconstructing LIS curricula to address the needs of racially diverse communities throughout MLIS courses, and challenging dominant LIS discourses using critical research methods. Participants are invited to use this forum to explore their research in relation to libraries. For this meeting, we will be discussing the book Unapologetic by Charlene Carruthers, and the article "Public Librarians Launch Libraries4BlackLives" by Lisa Peet.
