New Paradigms of Justice: How Knowledge Curators Can Respond to the Information Crisis (Oct 16th 2020)

Data discrimination is a real social problem, and in this talk, Noble offers a powerful set of data points, examples, and provocations. She asserts we are at the beginning of creating new paradigms of justice in the technology sector and that information institutions and professionals are both at the forefront of a necessary reckoning with the past and the vanguard for the future.

Dr. Noble’s talk suggests both practical and imaginative ways for information professionals like librarians, museum curators, and knowledge managers to take seriously the role they can play in synthesizing complex social crises into their work and their ability to positively employ social change.
