"One of the feminist practices key to my teaching and research is a feminist practice of citation."
From The Digital Feminist Collective, this blog post emphasizes the power of citing.
"Acknowledging and establishing feminist genealogies is part of the work of producing more just forms of knowledge and intellectual practice."
Here's an exercise (docx) to help you in determining how inclusive you are when citing.
Additional Resources for Inclusive Citation Practices:
- BIPOC Scientists Citation guide (Rockefeller Univ.).
- Conducting Research through an Anti-Racism Lens (Univ. of Minnesota Libraries).
- cleanBib (Code to probabilistically assign gender and race proportions of first/last authors pairs in bibliography entries).
- Balanced Citer (Python script guesses the race and gender of the first and last authors for papers in your citation list and compares your list to expected distributions based on a model that accounts for paper characteristics).
- Cite Black Women Collective; in particular, their 5 Guiding Principles:
- Read Black women's work;
- Integrate Black women into the CORE of your syllabus (in life & in the classroom);
- Acknowledge Black women's intellectual production;
- Make space for Black women to speak;
- Give Black women the space and time to breathe.
