Instruct and Deconstruct: Information Literacy Within Carceral Institutions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This four-person panel will discuss the ways in which some Canadian prisons influence the definition and role of “information,” and subsequently, information literacy. Drawing upon over a decade of intensive volunteer experience, panelists will engage with librarians’ roles within the context of carceral institutions, focusing on ethics, authority, and service.
