      • Back in the OutsideTimes, several of Teaching & Learning Engagement’s team members used to organize a monthly article discussion. We called it Munch & Mull because 1.) alliteration 2.) it happened during lunch time. Articles largely focused on pedagogy with the occasional few dealing with neoliberalism in the academy. In response to a communicated need for more no-barrier-to-entry antiracist education opportunities for our fellow library workers, it’s back.

Virtual Events

  • Critical Pedagogy Symposium

    • Monday 5/17-Wednesday 5/19 - 11-4 EST

      • Registration is free!: link to register

      • We will explore together a pedagogy that interrogates and explores frameworks of power. We're open to any framework of anti-oppression and vision of justice that can help us to do better work, to hold ourselves to a deeper accounting, and to think more rigorously and more clearly.
        The Symposium invites critiques along the lines of race/ethnicity, indigenous and decolonial perspectives, issues of labor and class, and inclusive of gender/sexuality.
        Featuring Keynotes:
        Opening Keynote: Jamillah Gabriel
        Closing Keynote: Cite Black Women in conversation with Black Women Radicals moderated by Shawn(ta) Smith-Cruz
        For more information about the program, see our website.
        The Critical Pedagogy Symposium is a collaborative project of ACRL/NY, LILAC, and METRO with additional support from Library Juice Press and NYU Libraries. If you have any questions, email us at criticallibrarysymposium@gmail.com
