College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences
Carolyn Caffrey Gardner, information literacy coordinator and liaison librarian for CNBS Social Sciences, has co-authored the article “False narratives of generational difference in academic libraries: Toward an intersectional approach,” which appears in the April 2018 issue of the peer-reviewed journal The Library Quarterly: Information, Community, Policy. The article examines the use of generational rhetoric in library literature and argues that the use of these narratives are problematic in how they reinforce whiteness, and ignore an intersectional approach to identity and power.
