The Southwest Idaho Library UnConference, held at the Collister branch of the Boise Public Library, went wonderfully! Here’s what people tweeted about it. For me, the (unplanned!) outreach session was a highlight, as well as the very planned user experience one.
After being recommended it by someone on Twitter (probably Lauren Smith, but it’s been a while so I’m not sure), I read Joacim Hansson’s chapter “Chantal Mouffe’s theory of agonistic pluralism and its relevance for library and information science research” from Critical theory for library and information science: exploring the social from across the disciplines. It’s a very good introduction of her thought and definitely worth reading if you’ve any interest in how libraries play a role in democracies. I very well may write up reading notes on it before long.
