Twitter chats are an opportunity for synchronous bursts of conversation on current topics. We started the #critlib chat to build a conversation about issues of critical pedagogy in academic libraries, but topics have grown to include library assessment, gender in RDA, and library responses to social justice actions in our communities. Publicly exploring our assumptions about our profession is sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes fiery, and always an opportunity for growth and action. This panel presentation and discussion will examine how we talk--and don't talk--about critical issues surrounding the profession and our identity within it.
