Description

This reading list aims to build off some of the ideas presented in OpenCon's Diversity Equity and Inclusion Panel:
"While the Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education movements often lean on rhetoric around social justice, equity, and the democratization of knowledge, in many ways, the movements continue to marginalize underrepresented scholars and students. Mainstream efforts to advance Open centre digital solutions and dominant (often Western) ways of knowing. At the same time, they fail to acknowledge issues salient to marginalized social and geographical contexts, such as the digital divide, non-Western ways of knowing, and the colonization of information. This OpenCon panel session aims to prompt critical discussions around the ways in which the Open movements have replicated some of the same systems of power and oppression in higher education that they were originally meant to address. Audience members should leave with a more critical view of openness, and be encouraged to reflect on the following questions:
How do the solutions put forth by the Open movements reinforce Western dominance, colonialism, as well as barriers on the basis of race, class, gender, ability, etc...?
How does exclusion and a lack of diversity impact their own Open advocacy work in their communities and/or institutions?
How might they begin to address this in their own communities?"

What are we working on during the do-a-thon? What kinds of support do we need?

I have a personal list of articles that I often reference when reflecting on the limitations of Open Research and Open Education, but I'd love to share and grow that list, and exchange favourite papers with others. I'm looking for folks who have other readings to link and add to the list! Looking for:

  • blog posts
  • academic papers
  • online articles
  • comics
  • open to other media too!

How can others contribute?

I'm at the in-person meeting in Berlin but hoping this will be a longer term project. Will share a google doc soon. If you have suggestions for readings, please link them right in this Github thread!

I am an English speaker so my own suggested readings will be in English, but totally open for folks to suggest readings in their other languages as well!

This post is part of the OpenCon 2017 Do-A-Thon. Not sure what's going on? Head here.

I'm finding the work by the Knowledge Gap team to be very useful in shaping my thinking about some of these issues http://knowledgegap.org/index.php/sub-projects/knowledge-and-power-inequality-in-open-science-policies/

This post by OpenCon alum April Hathcock titled "You're gonna screw up" is amazing (thanks @daniellecrobinson for reminding me about this a few weeks ago).

OK started putting together a list! Right now the permissions are on suggestions/comment-access to maintain a level of curation and also to minimize "contributions" from potential trolls (which I've seen and experienced in open threads that are meant to talk about progressive topics): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UntfqcGgsg47--caFFNjksZ7N2zBmnBD1nLdjYTokQQ/edit#

if you disagree with this approach, please let me know!
