As the fifth annual iYouth Conference approaches, we will highlighting some of the speakers and presenters who will be featured at the Conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Marisa Elena Duarte will be our keynote speaker this year. Marisa is a doctoral student at the University of Washington Information School. Her area of research is on the social and political impacts of information, knowledge, and technology in Indigenous and borderland communities. While her current research is on tribal broadband Internet deployment, her prior work has included serving as a children’s librarian and world languages collections development librarian at Fresno County Public Library, an instructional librarian for Millennial learners at Arizona State University, and a Peer Information Counselor at the University of Arizona. She is a strong advocate for diversity and social justice in libraries and youth services and we are very excited for her to share her insight and experiences.
