Alison is an MLIS candidate in the Faculty of Information & Media Studies at Western University in London, Ontario. Influenced by the work of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Jacques Derrida, her research examines a radical reworking of LIS classification systems. By adopting a lens that challenges conventional Western thinking, her aim is to deconstruct and create an inclusive classification system, devoid of binaries that influence society and how information is retrieved and understood.
