As information exponentially increases each year, it’s vital that we take the time to critically evaluate the sources we use in our teaching. Christine Pawley’s seminal critique of information literacy tells us that we need to learn and teach our students how information works; “We need to be both explicit about the moral and political commitment to flattening rather than reinforcing current information and literacy hierarchies”  As the landscape of information becomes even more complex and traditional norms of publishing have shattered, we have a greater individual responsibility to critically evaluate sources to be used in our courses with social justice in mind.
Social justice is a vision of society in which the distribution of resources is equitable and all members of a space, community, institution, or society are physically and psychologically safe and secure. It’s an analysis of how power, privilege, and oppression impact our experience of our social identities.
