Learn how to develop conscientious practices that can counter structural bias in the research process, from searching and citing diverse scholarship to designing inclusive research questions and methods. Session will include a panel discussion with librarians in STEM, Arts and Humanities who will explore this topic through disciplinary lenses. For example, why are some ideas more respected and centered by default than others? What biases lurk inside of supposedly “objective'' data? Why is the gender gap in citation of female scholars actually widening?  


Session attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify biases that can make your research practices less inclusive

  • Generate comprehensive search strategies

  • Explore research resources beyond the traditional canon of your discipline

  • Develop more inclusive citation practices


Presenter Information: Erica Brody, Carla-Mae Crookendale, John Glover, and Hillary Miller
