KEYNOTE

Keynote speaker, Maria T. Accardi, gave a talk entitled Critical Pedagogy and Academic Libraries: Empowering Learners to Change the World. Critical pedagogy is an approach to teaching that envisions the learning experience as a way of bringing about social change and social justice. By fostering a classroom environment that empowers learners as active participants rather than passive vessels waiting to be filled, teachers employ strategies such as consciousness-raising about societal oppression in order to not just teach students about a particular concept or skill, but to also inspire them to take action to change the world. In recent years, academic librarians have been drawing on the work of critical pedagogy to inform and invigorate their teaching practices. Accardi explored the theoretical underpinnings of critical pedagogy and explained how it can be enacted in academic library settings such as the library instruction classroom or the reference desk.

Maria is Associate Librarian and Coordinator of Instruction and Reference at Indiana University Southeast, a regional campus of Indiana University located in New Albany, Indiana. She served as a co-editor of and contributor to Critical Library Instruction: Theories and Methods (Library Juice Press, 2010), and is the author of Feminist Pedagogy for Library Instruction (Library Juice Press, 2013), for which she received the ACRL Women and Gender Studies Section Award for Significant Achievement in Women and Gender Studies Librarianship in 2014. Maria's current projects include editing The Feminist Reference Desk: Contexts, Critiques, and Conversations (forthcoming from Library Juice Press in 2017) and providing a platform to share burnout stories at librarianburnout.com.
