The July 12 coffee chat at the Spoke and Bird South Loop was a discussion on evaluating library spaces. These informal coffee chats are designed to allow attendees to talk through the emerging needs at their library, and learn from the experiences of others.
To continue getting ready for our fall ethnography workshop with Andrew Asher and Donna Lanclos, we held a discussion of their article "'Ethnographish': The State of the Ethnography in Libraries".
The discussion took place on Tuesday, July 23 at the Jennie Huizenga Memorial Library, Trinity Christian College. Remote participation was available. The discussion of the article was led by Emma Boettcher, University of Chicago and Cathy Mayer, Trinity Christian College.
These informal coffee chats are designed to allow attendees to talk through the emerging needs at their library, and learn from the experiences of others. Our theme for this chat is “Summer Projects.” We want to hear about the projects and/or research – big or small – that you are engaging in (or wishing for) at your libraries and universities this summer.
When: Friday, June 7th | 9:00am - 11:00 am
Where: Meet at Cosi 116 S Michigan Ave
This event was held at the Off Color Brewing's Mousetrap Taproom (1460 N Kingsbury) on April 25th at 6:00 pm and was a discussion of the book So You Want to Talk About Race by Seattle-based writer and activist Ijeoma Oluo.
In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
