Renewals Reach: Toxic Positivity in Librarianship

Contextualizing the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, which have combined and augmented the previously established cultural, economic, and political gaps in library workplaces, Virginia Moran and Talia Nadir discuss the convergence of toxic positivity, resilience narratives, and vocational awe in their invited paper for the Association of College & Research Libraries’ 2021 Conference.

Noting the larger sphere of emotional labor that also frames their discussion,  the 2017 low morale study is referenced in the paper.

Read the paper.
