"All Labor is Local"


Labor, to riff off a more well-known phrase, is an inherently "local" concept—viewed subjectively through the backgrounds of both those who perform it and those in positions of power who create and or influence policy around it. Both perspectives are deeply political. On the eve of Election Day, this keynote will explore the ways in which we, as employees and employers, apply our local experiences to how we perform the labor in libraries and archives, and what we can do to broaden those perspectives to be more inclusive of the communities we hope to serve.
Presenter: Stacie Williams
