Library DEI Book Discussion Series, Spring 2023

Welcome! This Guide is being developed as part of a Spring 2023 library staff DEI discussion series on the book Straddling Class in the Academy, being read by library staff and facilitated by members of the library's DEI Committee.  

This Guide is a work in progress!   The Guide should be useful to others for its growing content, structure, and syllabus of additional relevant readings. After the series concludes, we may continue to add materials to the Guide as well.

For questions or comments on this Guide, please contact Susan Vega García.
