I usually put together a list of meetings and programs that may be of interest to feminists and their friends for ALA Conferences.  This year I ran out of time so here is a quick list.

This is a quick list of meetings and programs that may be of interest to Feminists and their friends.  Also found at http://ftfinfo.wikispaces.com/Conference+Schedules.

 

Feminist Task Force (FTF)

 

Friday, June 24

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM – Feminist Task Force (SRRT) - HYATT Regency Orlando, Bayhill 21

Regular business meeting (Notes from ALA 2016 Midwinter http://ftfinfo.wikispaces.com/Minutes }

 

                Saturday, June 25

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM    Introduction to Women's Issues in ALA Discussion Group - HILTON Orlando, Clear Lake

 

We will introduce people to ACRL WGSS, COSWL, GLBTRT, and the LLAMA Women Administrator’s Discussion group and talk for a few minutes about what each group is doing.

Some of the topics mentioned at Midwinter: women and gaming in libraries, graphic novels by women, etc. but we seemed to settle on something based on telling stories about your workplace and maybe narrow this down to how to negotiate in your library setting.  This can be negotiating all kinds of things and maybe how this is different for women than men.

Monday, June 27

8:30 AM - 10:00 AM    Discussion Forum (ACRL WGSS) - HILTON Orlando, Lake Virginia

The focus of the discussion will be on the development of discipline specific Frameworks. This discussion forum will give our section's instruction committee to talk about their work on creating frames for women and gender studies programs.

 

The panel will consist of TaraBaillargeon chair of the WGSS instruction committee, and Joyce Garczynski, chair of EBSS communication studies committee will discuss their work in developing discipline specific frames. Jeanne Davidson, chair of the Information Literacy Framework and Standards Committee, and Sharon Mader, ACRL visiting program officer for information literacy will round out the panel of presenters. I also asked the sections who have discipline specific standards to participate/attend and for someone from Student Learning and Information Literacy committee to also attend the forum. It should be a good discussion and I am hoping it is well attended.

Kortemeier writes that she “seek[s] to highlight and amplify the voices of female poets in the holdings of a single library by enhancing subject analysis in cataloging practices and creating a shelf marking system for anthologies that focus on women's writing.” The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
