To Decolonize or Indigenize – Dr. Spencer Lilley – December 8th, 2015

Decolonize or indigenize?: Transitionising for the information profession

Description: Library and information institutions are colonial constructs that have collected and organized indigenous knowledge, but are they really inclusive? Using examples from Canada and New Zealand, this talk considers whether the answer to this question is to decolonize these institutions or to focus on indigenizing them.

Presented by UBC’s iSchool in partnership with UBC Library
