"We're all feminists here!": Intersectional Interventions in a Women's College Library

February 25, 2016

Vani Natarajan, Barnard Library's Humanities and Global Studies Librarian, joined by former Barnard librarian and IMATS manager Miriam Neptune presents We're all feminists here!": Intersectional Interventions in a Women's College Library at the Critical Librarianship and Pedagogy Symposium at the University of Arizona in Tucson/ 

Presentation Description:
As librarians of color who have worked in women’s college libraries, we want to talk about what it means to embody our intersectionality in settings where phrases like, “We’re all feminists here,” may be used to avoid reckoning with critique of systemic injustice. We will draw upon our work as activist librarians, highlighting projects aimed at creative disruption. Our presentation will provide a forum to discuss with other librarians how we can make interventions even when the institutions we are a part of co-opt, conceal, and undermine efforts toward structural change.
