DescriptionPresentation. Critical Librarianship & Pedagogy Symposium, November 2-4, 2022, The University of Arizona.
AbstractAs librarians, we can be complicit in asking students to use sources centering Eurocentric voices and research approaches through our databases, citational practices, and how we emphasize credibility. The goal of this session is to create awareness of how, in trying to appease faculty requests, we become complicit in helping them promote Eurocentric scholarship and in turn assimilating students to hold up white academic standards of research. This session will also aim to show how the library systems we teach are often flawed in which voices get promoted. Attendees will be asked to think through what they are usually asked to show students and how it can promote one “right” (white) style of research. It is the goal that attendees will walk away with discussion points they can use to engage faculty in looking at their research assignments in a new light.
