Abstract: 

Baharak Yousefi has been peddling books in Vancouver for the past twenty-two years. She is a bookseller-turned-librarian and a refugee-turned-settler. Baharak is co-editor of Feminists Among Us: Resistance and Advocacy in Library Leadership.

Description: 

SFU librarian Baharak Yousefi joins Am Johal on Below the Radar to discuss critical librarianship, interrogating the entrenched systems and structures of libraries. She speaks to issues around the way librarians are schooled, the commodification of knowledge, and the need to make libraries welcoming spaces to all.


Baharak also shares her love of books and culture that brought her to librarianship and talks about the popular One Book One SFU events she planned and hosted through the SFU Library. Am also asks her about her fondness for Vancouver’s West End and the neighbourhood’s quirky design gems.
