Abstract:This full day workshop builds a new community of scholars interested in exploring the potential of the "Social Studies of Information" (SSI) as a meta-identity for information research informed by the humanities and social sciences. We are inspired by the broad field of STS (for either "Science and Technology Studies" or "Science, Technology, and Society"). STS-influenced work within iSchools has been balkanized across a range of functional classifications and disciplinary identities. These differ from school to school, and are often seen as marginal or esoteric within the strongly technical focus of many iSchools. Calling this the "Social Studies of Information" acknowledges the shared object of study around which iSchools are built. Full program at www.socialstudiesof.info/workshop14.
