Congratulations to Celia Emmelhainz, Anthropology and Qualitative Research Librarian, on her two recent publications:
With co-authors Erin Pappas and Maura Seale, Celia has published “Thinking Through Visualizations: Critical Data Literacy Using Remittances,” a chapter in the new ACRL book, Critical Library Pedagogy. This chapter provides context and a lesson plan on World Bank data for librarians to use in engaging undergraduates with thinking critically about data and visualization.
Celia has also published a conference paper on “Interviews, Focus Groups, and Social Media: lessons from collaborative library ethnographies in America and Kazakhstan,” presented at this year’s International Federation of Library Associations. This paper explores how ethnography is used to study libraries and their patrons, bringing in examples of past projects and how collaboration has enhanced or challenged the process of research.
