Building a Feminist Library (BaFL)

This project comes from our desire to collectively build a Statement of Lab Values and Commitments at the Feminist Media Studio. Many of you joined us over the past year as we used resource sharing and storytelling to highlight collective values and clusters of meaning among FMS members. This year, we will begin to identify (RA-funded) working groups based around the library’s texts.
Bring a book! There will be time allotted for participants wishing to share a text for the library to do so. Returning and first-time participants are welcome to propose texts that have informed their work and share the stories that brought them to it, which the FMS will purchase from a feminist bookstore for the library. Visit the library in person & via Zotero.



Accessibility Information:
This event is hybrid and will be held both on Zoom and in-person at the Feminist Media Studio.

The Feminist Media Studio is located on the second floor of the Communications and Journalism (CJ) building on the Loyola Campus which can be accessed via an outdoor staircase or ramped entrance. The second floor can then be reached by indoor stairs or elevator. The lab door opens outward into a hallway with a key card entry (restricted to active FMS members).

Inside the lab there is a lounge area with low seating, a narrow kitchenette that may be difficult to navigate with a wheelchair or walker, a large conference room with sliding barn doors, moveable tables and chair seating, the technician’s office which requires key-access, and a production studio which requires key access and features a small sound booth, with a raised floor.
