[IFLA-L] Reminder: Call for papers – SIG Indigenous Matters

Call for Papers

Special Interest Group: Indigenous Matters

16 – 22 August 2014, Lyon


Vive le “I” for indigenous in IFLA: strengthening cultural responsiveness and accountability in libraries and information

Due date for Proposals for Papers:
3 February 2014

Join in today!

The SIG Indigenous Matters invites proposals for papers that illustrate how library and information organisations demonstrate cultural responsiveness for and with indigenous peoples. This could be through recruitment, policy, practice, continuing professional development and/or something completely outside the box. We are seeking contribution’s that trigger the imagination; inspires positive change; dares others to replicate, or reaffirms what does not work.

Aligned with the Congress theme: ‘Librarians, Citizens, Societies: Confluence of Knowledge’, the SIG Indigenous Matters Open Session aims to identify, compare and address the challenges experienced when western world view meets indigenous world view or vice versa and how these issues are worked through by, or impact, library and information partnerships with indigenous communities and the creation of shared cultural meaning.

The goal is to create a diverse programme of 4-6 speakers representing indigenous peoples/ library and information organisations from different parts of the world who have different experiences to share.

The full Call for Papers is available on the WLIC 2014 website at http://conference.ifla.org/ifla80/calls-for-papers/vive-le-i-indigenous-ifla-strengthening-cultural-responsiveness.

Due date for Proposals for Papers: 3 February 2014.
