Smash all the Gates, Part 2: Professional Silenc*


A thought provoking post from Lauren Wallis – another former Jackson Library intern doing really cool things. Her 2014 TILC presentation was hot fire too.

Originally posted on Do-It-Yourself Library Instruction:


Like the zero in mathematics, silence is an absence with a function.
-Cheryl Glenn, The Rhetoric of Silence

Silence always has meaning. That’s the main idea behind Cheryl Glenn’s rhetoric of silence, which I want to explore here in terms of the culture of library instruction–how do we choose and use silence, how are we silenced, and how can we resist silencing?

[Two Caveats]

  1. I am going to address the unequal power dynamics between subject faculty and librarians in this post, and some of my characterizations of subject faculty are negative. That said, I have worked with subject faculty who have been collaborative, supportive mentors and co-teachers–but I find that this is the exception, rather than the rule.
  2. While this post might sound super negative, I actually feel excited and hopeful about the future of library instruction and information literacy. I just think we have some work to do.

Plans for the rest of the summer…

1.) Split Crates Radio on WUVT 90.7fm.

Every Tuesday from 6pm-9pm. You can listen online at MC Salty Brown is the co-host and I’m the DJ.

For the past month or so, we’ve been traveling to a different locale each week. Tonight we’ll be in Canada. We’ll also be traveling back in time to the pre-Aubrey Graham Canada raps era. Will this be the most polite edition of Split Crates Radio ever? There’s only one way to find out. 

2.) WRITE! So many interesting projects, only so much summer. 

3.) Spend quality time with my Ensoniq ASR-10

Review from the last wedding reception I rocked…

Talk about “making money having fun.” :)

From the bride:

“Look no further! Craig Arthur was a fantastic DJ. He really understood the vibe of our wedding and matched the music within our preferences perfectly. Even after our first meeting, we left with extreme confidence knowing Craig would make our wedding a hit. He kept the dance floor filled, which was our goal for the evening. We loved dancing the night away with Craig in control. We would highly recommend him for any wedding or party!”
