Workshop | Citation Justice: What it means and how you can practice it

University House Room 108

The Birmingham Business School’s Decolonisation Project team will be joined by members of FEM network, based in Maastricht University, who have gained a lot of attention around the topic of citation justice, following the publication of their citation guide.

Citations have a powerful impact on our careers and on our professional development. Founder of “Cite Black Women”, Christen Smith, outlined how citations in academia can be considered a ‘genealogy of thought’, a field of power, an act of acknowledgement that affirms humanity by recognising the importance of individual and collective contributions to the world. But they can also be used as a tool of erasure and silencing of voices that are often unheard, with repercussions of representation which impact our research disciplines, and research environments. 

Join us on International Women’s Day for a workshop co-organised with the University Library Services, to critically reflect on our everyday practices of citation and begin to discuss to what extent our current citing practices can have a detrimental effect by disproportionately under citing certain groups, particularly women and BAME and how we can nurture and celebrate more equitable practices in our citation culture.
