In Spring 2022, the Library History Round Table will devote volume 6, number 1 of Libraries: Culture, History, and Society, and significant space in LHRT News and Notes, to scholarship, book reviews, and blog posts on Black women librarians. This issue will be guest-edited by Dr. Nicole A. Cooke, the Augusta Baker Endowed Chair and Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina. [...]
Dr. Cooke will accept proposals for scholarly articles and select 4-6 research studies for publication in LCHS. She will collaborate with additional authors and with Brett Spencer, LCHS book editor, and LHRT blog editor, to publish additional material in News and Notes. We are particularly interested in material on Black women librarians who have not yet been covered adequately by the scholarly or professional literature (please see the linked list). Proposals concerning other pathbreaking librarians are also welcomed. Thus, there will be various opportunities for all types of writers within the library history community to contribute toward raising awareness about the experiences of Black women within our field.
To submit a proposal, please contact Dr. Cooke via this signup form by November 16, 2020. https://forms.gle/QA5QggLHfU8NHUwM8 Full CFP can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lFFga_cdu1stWAnnF0gk8_KwjYe2MfUd/view?usp=sharing.
