Prefigurative Information Politics: Strategies for Survival, Resilience, and Liberation

About the Lecture

What would it really mean for LIS to decenter institutions, capital, ableism, and whiteness, and resituate our examination of the information practices and structures of people who are marginalized in the United States? The information worlds and lives of Black and Brown people are rich and complex, but much of LIS research with these communities is limited to points of "need" and deficit. Dr. Gibson will highlight research that engages with information and data and communities of color, talk about some of her own work in community health and education, and discuss frameworks for moving forward within LIS.
