10/17: (Radical) Keywords for (Reference) Librarianship

Monday, October 17, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This year AK Press published Keywords for Radicals: The Contested Vocabulary of Late-Capitalist Struggle, exploring the some of the language that shapes & informs our political & socioeconomic landscape. We have invited the authors of Keywords entries & librarians to engage in conversation on select keywords and to consider how they apply to reference service specifically, but also to librarianship, research, collaborative teaching & social justice within the library more generally. Join this participatory community dialogue as we investigate how radical keywords shape our work and our teaching. Open to librarians, students, educators, archivists, activists, and wider publics.

A collaboration of METRO’s Reference & Social Justice Special Interest Groups.
