Decolonizing the Ethics of Intellectual Freedom: Exploring a New Intersectional Framework for Allyship and Ethical Practice

  • Erin Ballantyne

Abstract

The intersection between Indigenous allyship, intellectual freedom, and social responsibility is understudied in LIS literature. This conceptual paper employs literature-based critical analysis to explore the tension between these concepts and torwards the theoretical basis for a new interdisciplinary model for ethical information practice. The model draws on foundational aspects of human rights scholarship, human resources literature, philosophy, and uncertainty as a critical tradition for  librarianship.
