Please see below for information regarding the Politics of Libraries III: Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Intersectionality in LIS virtual conference. Registration is free.

All of the presentations are relevant to today's LIS landscape, so please follow the forwarded link to find out more about them. I am providing the description of a presentation that relates to information literacy:

"April 23, 12-1 pm MST – Indicators of Truly Epic Post-ness: Information Literacy, Authority, and the Contemporary Political Podcasting Ecosystem, Joel Blechinger

Both of LIS’ guiding documents on IL – 2000’s Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education and its more recent successor, 2016’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education – face significant challenges in the “wild west” of contemporary political podcasting. Specifically, political podcasting is where “authority” – as traditionally constructed and understood by LIS – is, I would like to argue, liquefied in quite radical ways. I will look closely at the right-wing conspiracist phenomenon QAnon, and how it has been analyzed across the spectrum of contemporary political podcasting to illustrate this brave new world of liquid authority."

Kind regards,
