Abstract:This session uses a roundtable format to bring together researchers working on human information behavior (HIB) and non dominant groups. As a session, we focus on the study of transnational migration, with the understanding that many of the issues faced by researchers in this area are shared by projects on other non-dominant groups. Our objective is to foster conversation among a community of active researchers on the theoretical, methodological, professional and political aspects of migration. The term migration is here considered broadly, so as to include not only movement between countries, but also movement between the urban and rural, permanently or temporarily, once or repeatedly. Rather than discussing individual research projects in depth, we will share methodological challenges of studying migration; relevant interdisciplinary theory or theories that provide insight into migrational experience in the context of information practices; and extensions of research to professional work of information institutions. Our key objective is to provide a space that brings together a community of researchers who share similar interests in (and face similar challenges with) qualitative research with non-dominant groups.
