CFP: ALA 2018 panel participants on the intersection of the arts, social justice, and librarianship

The ACRL Women & Gender Studies Section (WGSS) and Theatre Library Association (TLA) are looking for panelists attending ALA Annual 2018 in New Orleans who are at the intersection of librarianship, the arts, and social justice.

Are you an artist? Do you work with artists? This discussion panel might explore questions such as: What roles do libraries play in supporting artistic expression? For librarian-artists, how does artistic practice influence your work as a librarian and vice versa? And how does social justice, with feminism being one dimension of this, intersect with artistic practice and librarianship? All areas of the visual and performing arts are welcome.

If these questions interest you and you would like to speak on a panel for our Discussion Forum at ALA 2018, please complete the following form:

The panel discussion will take place on Monday June 25 at 8:30 a.m. The WGSS Program Planning Committee looks forward to hearing from you!
