LIS & Critical Theory Reading Group

Reading across disciplines, we will meet monthly to discuss Library & Information Science discourse in conversation with critical theory, pedagogy, and action, emphasizing intersectionality in race and culture through research, teaching, and practice. Our goal is to gain precision in engaging critical thought to explore ideas around reconstructing LIS curricula to address the needs of racially diverse communities throughout MLIS courses, challenging dominant LIS discourses using critical research methods, and examining mechanisms for engendering social change via LIS. Participants are invited to use this forum to explore their research in relation to libraries.
