Revolutionary Librarians: The Global Information Justice Movement

Dr. Toni Samek, School of Library and Information Studies

Come and learn about library and information
workers in many nations who identify as
political actors, who offer new possibilities for
strategies of resistance, and who challenge
censorship and other networks of control.
Dr. Samek discusses how their often
courageous approach to library and
information work is grounded in practical,
critical and emancipatory terms. These
librarians help shape a growing global
information justice movement – from
Argentina to Zambia!

See you there!
