CFP - CAPAL15 Academic Librarianship and Critical Practice

By nfawley on September 17, 2014 3:12 PM | Permalink

We are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals (CFP) for CAPAL15: Academic Librarianship and Critical Practice, the second annual conference of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL), which will be held May 31-June 2, 2015 as part of Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, which lies in unceded Algonquin territory.

The conference theme, critical practice, speaks to the intersection of academic librarianship with purposeful critical reflection on the dominant ways of thinking, speaking, and acting that characterize our profession. We envision elaboration of this theme through conversations about professional issues, civic engagement, theory, and day-to-day practice, and invite broad participation from all those with an interest in fostering critical inquiry in all aspects of academic librarianship. For a full description of the theme and list of potential topics, please see the CFP online at bit.ly/CAPAL15CFP.

The deadline for proposals is December 8, 2014.
