CFP: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Theological Libraries and Librarianship – Theological Librarianship (TL) Journal

This call does not specifically mention archives, but is an opportunity for anyone interested in the topic as it relates to theology.

CFP: Theological Librarianship’s Diversity Forum

In light of recent events in the country and in recognition of long-standing inequities in the library profession, Theological Librarianship (TL) is planning to devote the Spring 2021 issue to a forum addressing questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion in theological libraries and librarianship. Such questions take different forms in different libraries and even in different theological contexts, and we expect the forum to reflect some of these differences as well as some common themes across the landscape of theological librarianship. The TL forum will be an opportunity to share your experiences with these questions at your institution in a brief (750-1500 word) statement or reflection.

Since diversity, equity, and inclusion (themselves often fraught terms) evoke a variety of concerns and realties touching race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, disability, religious and ethnic identity, etc., TL is looking for submissions that address this variety in critical and constructive ways, with a special focus on the intersectional nature of differing religious commitments and theological perspectives as they engage with other forms of diversity.

Theological Librarianship (https://serials.atla.com/theolib) is an open access journal publishing peer reviewed articles, as well as essays and reviews, on subjects at the intersection of librarianship and religious and theological studies that potentially impact libraries.

The deadline for submissions to the Spring 2021 forum is January 3, 2021. Submissions must be made at https://serials.atla.com/theolib/about/submissions. Please review the submission guidelines carefully. You will need to login to create your submission. If you have not previously created an account, you will need to register first before a submission can be completed. In the submission form, select “Special Forum” under the Section drop-down.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our editorial team at editors-tl@atla.com.

Thank you,

Case Studies

New Case Study on Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials
Case 3: Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials in the National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Institution
 by Diana E. Marsh, Robert Leopold, Katherine Crowe, and Katherine S. Madison is the latest addition to SAA’s open access case studies series on Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials. This case examines the policies and practices of the National Anthropological Archives at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History over a fifty-year period. It describes a series of archival programs and projects that occurred before, during, and after the development of the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials in order to view changes in the archives’ access policies within a broader cultural and institutional milieu. The case study assesses the influence of the Protocols as well as some challenges to the adoption of several recommendations and makes several proposals for archival repositories with comparable collections and constituencies. The case studies series is sponsored by the Native American Archives Section.

Call for Chapters: Exploring Inclusive & Equitable Pedagogies: Creating Space for All Learners

Call for Chapters: Exploring Inclusive & Equitable Pedagogies: Creating Space for All Learners
Published by ACRL Press

CFP link: http://bit.ly/CFP_ACRLinclusivepedbook

Chapter Proposals due: January 15, 2021 **

About the Book

We seek to deepen our understanding of equitable and inclusive theories and practices in order to provide instructors with new grounding for both their individual teaching and their instruction program. Some of the questions we seek to address in this publication include: How do theories and practices related to equitable and inclusive pedagogies inspire your teaching? How have librarians engaged in equitable and inclusive teaching? How might librarians implement equitable and inclusive pedagogy in ways specific to library instruction?

Taking an inclusive approach to content, chapters will take a variety of formats such as: reflective and personal essays, narratives, analytical and academic essays, case studies, autoethnographies, lesson plans, or zines and other graphic formats. You can share your ideas for your own teaching or take a more programmatic approach. Submissions may reflect the range of instructional activities and settings with which academic library educators engage: special collections, data management, information literacy, digital scholarship, open education, and others, across the many different types of academic libraries. We encourage submissions from institutions that are underrepresented in information literacy literature, such as community colleges and minority-serving institutions.

Our book is unique in that it will share a range of theories related to equitable and inclusive pedagogies while also featuring examples of inclusive teaching in action. Academic library educators will gain both the theoretical foundations and practical applications to adopt more inclusive teaching practices. 

Submission Procedure

Please submit an initial chapter proposal description of up to 500 words and a tentative chapter title. The proposal form also asks you to include your approach (e.g., reflective essay on a theoretical approach, case study about data skills workshops) and a description of the content you will include in your chapter. Additional fields include: the author(s)’ names, titles, and institutional affiliations.

Please submit proposals to: Google Form
