About Knowlege For Change

Submitting resources: 

In order to make this project as effective and impactful as possible, HGSA needs your help! We welcome resource recommendations from the entire Loyola community, as well as Loyola alumni and anyone else interested in participating. 

You can submit resource recommendations here. We want to include many different kinds of materials on our list: non-fiction books, historical fiction books, podcasts, scholarly articles, documentaries, exhibits, and more. Here are the resource guidelines:

  • All submissions should focus on American history (though we hope to expand this in the future).
  • We encourage resources that explore how race intersects with gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, and more.
  • We are asking each person who submits a resource to provide a brief explanation of why they chose this resource. This review should be approximately 100-300 words long. 
  •  If you would like to participate but you are unsure where to start, we recommend searching Loyola’s library catalog.
  • All materials will be reviewed by HGSA members. Submissions may be edited for length or clarity. 

Upon receiving resource submissions, we will regularly update the project list with new materials. We are still determining the cadence for list updates. The schedule will be based on the number of submissions we receive. We encourage you to share this project on social media  so that we can get the word out to as many people as possible. 

If you have questions about the project, please contact Rachel Madden (rmadden1@luc.edu) or Erin Witt (ewitt@luc.edu).
