S3, E3: An Introduction to Critical Librarianship w/Jamillah Gabriel
*There were slight technical issues during the recording of this episode. We apologize for any minor disruptions*We are excited to welcome Jamillah R. Gabriel,  the Critical Pedagogy Research Librarian at Harvard University and co-host of the podcast LibVoices, for a second time. Jamillah provides listeners with a beginner-friendly overview of Critical Pedagogy, how it can be applied to library and information science, and used to promote EDIA within libraries and educational settings. Jamillah explores why EDIA racism trainings fail (or perhaps more accurately, why EDIA trainings are designed to fail), and how decolonizing bibliographic research can aid in centering marginalized voices and perspectives when it comes to knowledge production and citation. For additional readings on the topics discussed, try: The Criticalness of LIS Incorporating Critical Theory, Pedagogy, and Action in LIS Research, Teaching, and Practice by Jamillah R.
