Comics And Public History: The True Story Of The 1934 Chatham Coloured All-Stars, Dale Jacobs, Heidi Lm Jacobs

English Publications

This essay examines how the Harding Project, a digital and oral history project at the University of Windsor, decided to use comics as one way to tell the story of the 1934 Chatham Coloured All-Stars. It is a story of collaboration and what can happen when conversation is allowed to develop organically as connections are created with the community. This essay details one such collaboration, between individual community members, community groups, and researchers from History, Leddy Library, and English at the University of Windsor, and the resulting cross-pollination of public history, digital librarianship, and comics studies. In telling this story, …

Questioning The Past And Possible Futures: Digital Historiography And Critical Librarianship, Heidi Jacobs, Calin Murgu Jan 2017

Questioning The Past And Possible Futures: Digital Historiography And Critical Librarianship, Heidi Jacobs, Calin Murgu

Leddy Library Publications

The role of history as a discipline is, as Burton and Sweeny claim, not only to transform our understanding of the past and the present but also to shape possible futures. Digital historical projects are transformative endeavors that attempt to negotiate and navigate the past and articulate these possible futures. Drawing on the foundational ideas of critical librarianship to “intervene in and disrupt” structural inequities and on examples from digital historiography, we argue for a more robust role for librarians within these transformative endeavors. In so doing, librarians can use conscious, deliberate, reflexive actions to work toward animating values central …


Pedagogies Of Possibility Within The Disciplines: Critical Information Literacy And Literatures In English, Heidi Lm Jacobs Jan 2014

Pedagogies Of Possibility Within The Disciplines: Critical Information Literacy And Literatures In English, Heidi Lm Jacobs

LRI Participants at CAIS - ACSI

While most disciplines have responded to the generic openness of the ACRL Standards by creating discipline-specific guidelines and competencies, there is a need for us to consider other ways to approach information literacy in the disciplines. Critical information literacy reminds us to engage ourselves and our students with what Freire described as "problem-posing education," which “bases itself on creativity and stimulates true reflection and action upon reality” (84). This article discusses how information literacy work in literatures in English could engage students and librarians in the act of collective problem-posing about the discipline. Drawing upon critical information literacy's emphasis on …

Report On The Project To Process The Sports Archives, Meng Ya

This report is a summary of the project to process the Sports Archives for the University of Windsor.

The records of the Faculty of Human Kinetics are also included. The practical process consisted of archival appraisal, arrangement and description. Records were sorted, evaluated, retained or disposed of. Those kept were properly stored in labelled folders and boxes. Twelve descriptive guides were prepared. The establishment of the Sports Archives is indicative of the …
