Call for chapters: Critical Library Pedagogy in a Global Context

There is a call for chapters for a book to be edited by Jessica Haigh and Judy O'Connell, Critical library pedagogy in a global context, with proposals (500-1000 words) due by 15 October 2018. "The purpose of the book is to provide a collection of 15-20 practical and evidence based chapters which will explore various aspects of critical pedagogy and how the theory can be applied to information literacy teaching. Critical librarianship is a growing field, in which practical information about how theories can be implemented into practice in a way that is useful for librarians remains limited. This book will foster scholarly conversations in critical librarianship in academic libraries to support critical thinking, information literacy, and lifelong learning skills in students. Focusing on what a critical pedagogy means within a wide range of contexts and circumstances, this book aims to cover aspects of library practice both within the classroom, and in other circumstances where learning, training, helping and teaching occur." Full chapters will be due 15 March 2019
