spatial justice: Spatial justice brings together social justice and space. How space is organized (what and who occupies any given space) is a crucial dimension of human societies, reflecting social realities and (in)justices while also influencing social relations (Henri Lefebrve, 1968, 1972). This concept can be used as a guiding tool to understand and reflect on solutions to social injustices that are embedded in both space and society.
public art: art in any media that has been planned and executed with the intention of being staged in the physical public domain, usually outside and accessible to all.

Hip Hop pedagogy is “an examination of the way hip-hop constructs discourse, the way it produces rhetorical meaning through its complex method of digital sampling, and how such a rhetoric functions within the scope of argumentation.” (Jeff Rice, “The 1963 Hip-Hop Machine: Hip-Hop Pedagogy as Composition”, College Composition and Communication (2003), p. 454.

This chat is based around net neutrality, primarily focusing on the context of recent governmental decisions/stances and organizational responses regarding net neutrality laws, with net neutrality literacy and net neutrality education being primary themes/talking points. The goal of this chat is to show what libraries are actively doing and thinking now, and what next steps are needed to follow-up on these issues.
As an extension of December 2015’s “Privacy Education in Libraries” #critlib chat, we will also continue to gauge where libraries stand on privacy education, patron data, and vendor/technology relationships (and their transparency or lack thereof).
