Jonathan Cope

He has a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Politics from Antioch College, a Master of Library and Information Science from Queens College, CUNY, and Master’s in Liberal Studies from The Graduate Center, CUNY.

He is particularly interested in the politics of libraries and library work. Jonathan is the author of a book chapter which discusses the applicability of social power research to information literacy and an article about the ideal of librarianship as an intellectual craft. He is the coauthor of an article about information literacy in the study of American politics and he is the coauthor of an article that details a study of how disciplinarity influences how faculty outside of the library conceptualize information literacy. He is also the author of an article on neoliberalism and library and information science and an essay that outlines a framework that can be used to analyze socially-generated information.

Dr. Nicholas Tampio headshout
Dr. Nicholas Tampio

Nicholas Tampio, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University. In his new book Common Core: National Education Standards and the Threat to Democracy (Johns Hopkins University Press 2018), Tampio considers the best arguments for and against national education standards and scrutinizes the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, the Advanced Placement US History Curriculum Framework, and the National Sexuality Education Standards. He argues that national educational standards alienate citizens from the local schools thereby making education and democracy worse. His talk considers how democracies ought to foster the right kinds of discussions about education policy.
