Educating, informing and creating bridges
Libraries, archives, and museums do media-based work that educates, informs, and creates bridges to culture and technology. The Radical Librarianship Track will address a broad range of media-based organizing themes: envisioning libraries and archives as centers for supporting movements for social equity; as information providers for social justice workers; and as places to explore how to use art, media, and technology for social transformation. In this track we will specifically consider the role of librarians and archivists in strengthening the knowledge, culture, and collective memory of communities impacted by chronic divestment and gentrification.
Coordinators of this track are Katie Dover-Taylor, Andrea Pérez, Heidy Berthoud, Benjamin Miller and Celeste Re.
