Hoʻokele Naʻauao 2020: Sofia Leung
Knowledge Justice
This talk will examine the concept of knowledge as a core component of library and information studies (LIS) through the lens of Critical Race Theory (CRT). The following questions will be used to explore the responsibility LIS has to the so-called “public good.” What power and agency do library and archive workers have over knowledge? How has LIS created and maintained systems of oppression such as White supremacy, colonialism, and racism? How does this impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities? Why is the experiential knowledge of BIPOC critical to imagining and building liberatory futures? What would it truly mean to decolonize our libraries? And finally, what is our obligation to ourselves and our communities to disrupt and destroy the systems of oppression within LIS?
