About this Event
The 3rd Annual citation roundtable aims to inspire students to think about the implications of research practices as they develop their understanding of social justice and their responsibility as advocates for themselves and others.
Based on the general principle that what we read and who we talk to shapes how we live and lead, the roundtable engages students to think critically about search algorithms, disciplinary canons, and syllabi content so that they may be more intentional about developing an intellectual genealogy. This year, we have coupled our discussion of citation with the theme of work and labor.
To explore this year's theme: "(In)Formal Economies and Citation Practice," we have invited Dr. K. Melchor Quick Hall, faculty in the School of Leadership Studies at Fielding Graduate University, to talk about her work with makers of ereba (cassava bread) in Honduras' Black Indigenous Garifuna community. Black and Indigenous women's lives and labor are consistently marginalized in an international relations framework that focuses on government power, which has led to a lack of acknowledgement of women's traditional ereba work for its contribution to grassroots development. Dr. Hall looks forward to exploring how a different politics of citation can leverage women's collective knowledges to transform disciplinary omissions.
Dr. Hall will be joined by returning respondent, Yusef Omowale, Executive Director, Southern California Library for Social Studies Research.
This event is made possible with support from The Office of the Core, the William H. Hannon Library, The Office of Intercultural Affairs, and the Citation Initiative.
