In 2-3 sentences, describe your scholarship or creative work to someone unfamiliar with the field.
My scholarship generally focuses on intersections of Library and Information Science and Critical Theory–specifically drawing from Feminist Theory and Performance Theory. Much of my work, including this non-traditional essay, explores care labor, neoliberalism, and institutional power dynamics.
What makes you particularly proud of this work?
Think it’s great that more academic journals are publishing non-traditional (and “non-academic”) scholarship, which opens up / shifts disciplinary discourse norms and potentially allows for a wider readership base.
