Start Date

Description

Business education is typically the embodiment of the neoliberalistic and capitalist-centered pedagogy that critical information literacy writers urge us to fight against, making it challenging for business librarians to integrate critical information literacy into the business curriculum in a meaningful way. Yet, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) requires business schools to demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility. How can business librarians incorporate critical theories into a professionally-oriented degree program like business? In what ways can they use critical pedagogy to frame issues of social justice and social responsibility, especially those surrounding the flow of information? Topics of discussion will include connections between business education, critical theory, critical information literacy, and critical pedagogy.
