White Privilege in Information

Systemic structures of white privilege and power are embedded in American culture. Personal and institutional commitments to equity, diversity, and inclusion demand that we examine how these structures are present in scholarly communication and information systems. Topics introduced will be wide-ranging. Examples include what is ‘valid’ research inquiry, how information is described and categorized, how search algorithms are biased, digital redlining, what kind of stories are preserved, and how scholars of color are (not) cited. Join us for an examination and discussion of these issues and more.
