SWILA UnConference 2016

The Southwest Idaho Library UnConference, held at the Collister branch of the Boise Public Library, went wonderfully! Here’s what people tweeted about it. For me, the (unplanned!) outreach session was a highlight, as well as the very planned user experience one.

Read Hansson on Mouffe in LIS

After being recommended it by someone on Twitter (probably Lauren Smith, but it’s been a while so I’m not sure), I read Joacim Hansson’s chapter “Chantal Mouffe’s theory of agonistic pluralism and its relevance for library and information science research” from Critical theory for library and information science: exploring the social from across the disciplines. It’s a very good introduction of her thought and definitely worth reading if you’ve any interest in how libraries play a role in democracies. I very well may write up reading notes on it before long.
