CHI Think Tank, Lyceum 101

There is great potential in making Native and Indigenous knowledge available digitally and in print, including centering and celebrating Indigenous sovereignty, agency, and expression. Yet it remains true that open access and publishing in general are not necessarily monolithic goods, especially given their brutal histories of intellectual dispossession. Even terms such as "acquiring editor" and "acquisitions" speak to troubling imbalances inherent in conventional publishing. Hosted by Amherst College Press in recognition of the forthcoming volume Abiayalan Pluriverses, this salon will explore alternative publishing models that prioritize ethics, justice, and mutuality. Guest speakers will discuss ways in which they've reconceived publishing and library work as a set of relational and community-based practices.
