On October 18, the University of Toronto Faculty of Information hosted Gender and Sexuality in Information Studies Colloquium. This event enabled lively discussion around many of the topics explored in the Feminist and Queer Information Studies Reader‘s 27 essays, which situate the field of Information Studies into critical conversation with studies of gender, sexuality, race, and technology. Here is an excerpt from the Colloquium description:

Perhaps more than any other discipline, information studies confronts the theoretical with the material. From the collections we build to the access tools we design to the histories we collect, catalog, and preserve, information studies theorists and practitioners are always engaged in the projects of making and being made.

Scholars presented on many exciting projects including The Circle of Lesbian Indexers, Feminist Porn, and Black LGBTQ Brilliance. Check out the full schedule here and learn more about what was shared via Twitter – #gsisc2014.
