Join the ACRL IS Teaching Methods committee for a conversation with Veronica Arellano Douglas and Joanna Gadsby, authors of Gendered Labor and Library Instruction Coordinators:The Undervaluing of Feminized Work. Veronica and Joanna will examine the structures and expectations inherent in the role of instruction coordinators through a critical feminist lens. They argue that instruction coordinator job responsibilities are primarily relational activity coded as feminine labor, and that this job role is subject to many of the gendered expectations associated with women.
Time for Q&A will follow the presentation.
