2014 Braverman Memorial Prize Winner Announced

A few months ago, the Progressive Librarians Guild’s Miriam Braverman Memorial Prize was awarded to Denise Scott, a recent MLIS graduate from the iSchool at the University of Toronto. The Braverman award competition recognizes outstanding written papers on some aspect of the social responsibility of libraries, librarians, or librarianship. Scott’s paper Deconstructing the ‘Books for Boys’ Discourse “provides a critical analysis of the ‘Books for Boys’ discourse and deconstructs some of the gendered assumptions that this discourse relies upon and reinforces.”
