- Q1. Is the terminology used by #critlib a barrier to entry to it?
- Q2. As a product of the academy, to what extent is #critlib using “the master’s tools” to dismantle it?
- Q3. If the goal of #critlib is to be emancipatory do practitioners have a duty to evangelize?
- Q4. Critical approaches to librarianship often depend on the interpretation of participants to make meaning. Does this make #critlib too personal? That is, are we too close to our methods?
