Abstract:This article explores the underinterrogated role of language and its relationship to power and oppression in the proliferation of discussion and dearth of action with regard to diversity in library and information science. Using critical discourse analysis as a framework, the article considers the institutional language practices that, without critical interrogation, establish and perpetuate hegemonic power structures and naturalize systems of oppression, creating a significant barrier to the goals of equity and meaningful diversity within the library and information science field.
