Presentation Abstract

When ideas of library neutrality seek to disentangle libraries from the lives of its patrons and or the politics of the time, there are librarians and there are library collections that demand action and advocacy. This lecture will discuss libraries documenting social movements through participatory community archives and the activist practitioners hoping to disrupt systems of oppression that also exist in the field of LIS.
