OCLC Distinguished Seminar Series: "We Have Never Been Neutral: Search, Discovery, and the Politics of Access".
Talk by Dr. Kimberly Christen, Director of the Digital Technology and Culture Program, the Director of Digital Projects for Native American Programs, and the co-Director of the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University. Dr. Kimberly Christen addresses the concept that library and archive practices are neutral and non-biased, trace the often violent histories of collecting and the construction of the public domain, unpack their connections to the foundations of libraries and archives, and open a space to provide a framework for ethical engagements and reciprocal practices through culturally responsive tools and engagements.
