Individual Presentation A: Queering identity: critique, self-exploration and social justice. (Sara Howard & Shawn(ta) Smith-Cruz)
This dual talk will be a critical investigation into gender & sexuality identity within librarianship using a social justice framework. The two LGBT subject specialists seek to problematize the profession by challenging the librarian to focus inwardly to a space concentrated with identity and self-exploration and examine the how gender and sexuality influences the ways we provide library services, calling attention to our roles as librarians in responding to social justice.

Individual Presentation B: Uncontrolled Feminism: Using Social Tagging in a Citation Manager to Create an Equitable Folksonomy (Amber Wilson and Dr. Taine Duncan)
Libraries must acknowledge that the patriarchal structure inherent to controlled vocabularies suppresses students' access to and engagement with information. How can we demonstrate the value of critical research while also encouraging a collaborative, equitable research vocabulary? Bring your laptops and join us as we explore Zotero tagging function to synthesize a vocabulary rooted in feminist philosophy.

Individual Presentation C: Do More of What You Want to Do (Ciara Healy)
Drawing explicitly on Sara Ahmed's work on diversity initiatives in universities, this individual presentation will unpack the affordances of library instruction, course/discipline specific or basic bibliographic/information literacy instruction, as a rich site of resistance within in a traditional university classroom. Specifically, what is at stake when equity and inclusion is included or even foregrounded in library instruction?
