Title: Bridging Discourses: Exploring the Relationship between Information Technologies and International Development
Author(s): Srinivasan, Ramesh; Jackson, Steven; Parikh, Tapan; Wallack, Jessica
Subject(s): development international information society microfinance community
Abstract: The panel will bring together scholars of information with training in computer science, economics, cultural studies, and the interdisciplinary social sciences to explicitly probe into the relationships held between information and technology initiatives and international development studies. The scholars presenting are leading voices conducting global applied research that concurrently consider social, cultural, economic, and technological factors. We believe that this interdisciplinary set of short presentations can stimulate an important dialogue related to the emergent relationships held between information and the over 70% of the world that still lacks routinized access to digital technologies and the internet.
