Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to join us for the 2021 Institute for Research Design in
Libraries (IRDL) Scholars' Speaker Series: Thinking Critically about
Research and Power. This series of presentations is designed to shine a
spotlight on voices and ideas that challenge traditional ways of conducting
research. It surveys various topics with the intention of inspiring
research explicitly rooted in social justice. The series is coordinated by
a working group of IRDL Scholars. As librarians, educators, and
researchers, we are pleased to share this opportunity to reflect and
incorporate what we learn from these speakers into our own research
efforts, so that our methodologies integrate anti-racist and anti-colonial

Each speaker session is free to attend via Zoom; anyone interested is
welcome. Directly following each presentation, there will be an opportunity
to discuss the topic further together.

Speakers include:

   - Kim TallBear, Associate Professor, Faculty of Native Studies,
   University of Alberta, and Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples,
   Technoscience & Environment
   - Emily Ford, Associate Professor and Urban & Public Affairs Librarian,
   Portland State University
   - Kakali Bhattacharya, Professor, College of Education, University of
   - Verónica N. Vélez, Founding Director, Education and Social Justice
