On Friday, May 19th Ilsa Govan from Cultures Connecting will be joining us to facilitate a workshop on white privilege and anti-racism work in our roles as librarians in higher education.
In preparation for this work we all have some homework to do. The more you have done to understand racism and privilege prior to this workshop, the better prepared you’ll feel. For this reason, it is strongly recommended we all read the articles sent out over the CLAMS listserv and/or spend some time on at least two of the following websites:
- Assimilation & Ethnic Identity, Asian Nation
- Asian Nation: Asian American History, Demographics, & Issues.
- Mixed Heritage Center, Information & Resources for People of Mixed Heritage
- Mixed Heritage Center: Information and resources for people of mixed heritage.
- Native Appropriations
- Native Appropriations posts images and comments to counter stereotypes of Native people. It is a great resource for anyone seeking to better understand cultural appropriation.
- Project Implicit
- Project Implicit a researched base test (Implicit Association Test) you can take on line that measures your unconscious attitudes and bias.
- Race: The Power of an Illusion
- Race: The Power of an Illusion has interactive quizzes, articles and other information on race.
- Sociological Images
- Sociological Images is a collection of visuals and critique helpful in developing a lens for seeing racism, sexism, heterosexism and other bias in media.

The CLAMS Spring Conference 2017 will be held at the Georgetown Campus of South Seattle College on Thursday, May 18th and Friday, May 19th. We are sending out a call for proposals on the theme of “Inside Out: Breaking Out of Our Shells”. We will be accepting proposals until May 5, 2017. You are strongly encouraged to submit proposals as soon as possible.
“Inside Out: Breaking Out of Our Shells” is about getting outside of our comfort zones and facing challenges to our role in the academic library. What are some ways we can branch out and diversify the academic library? Who is in your library? Who is not in your library? How can our libraries be sites of liberation? What would restorative librarianship look like? What would transformative librarianship look like? If community and technical colleges are critical social justice interventions into ivory tower academia, what are ways that we bring social justice into the work we do? These are questions we will be grappling with at the CLAMS Spring Conference 2017 and should be present in the spirit of your proposals.
