    The Critical Pedagogy Symposium is a working symposium that focuses on building a space to learn, collaborate, and engage with critical race theory in dialogue and community. The 2023 Symposium will focus on critical race theory in libraries. Our working definition of critical pedagogy includes: teaching and learning in the library that interrogates power structures, distributions of labor, histories, queer, racial inequities, environmental and social justices, and other forms of anti-oppression frameworks.

    Featuring key presentations: 

    The Symposium will feature an Opening Keynote from David James Hudson (University of Guelph) and Closing Keynote with Emily Drabinski (City University of New York Graduate Center) in conversation with David James Hudson and Baharak Yousefi (Simon Fraser University), moderated by Shawn(ta) Smith-Cruz (New York University).

    Mid Symposium Plenary: Critical Race Theory and Critical Pedagogy Librarianship: Intersections, Explorations, and Practice with Jamillah R. Gabriel (Harvard University), Robin Gee (Cornell University), Tova Johnson (Oregon Health & Science University), and Symphony Bruce (New York University).

    For more information about the program, see our website.

    The Critical Pedagogy Symposium is a collaborative project sponsored by ACRL/NY, CUNY LILAC, Barnard College, METRO, Library Juice Press and Library Juice Academy and NYU Libraries.
