Abstract:In Scandinavia, research in library and information studies has mainly had its roots in the soft social sciences and the humanities. By entering the iSchool movement, the Scandinavian iSchools are obviously being shaped by the official slogan information, people and technology and by other iSchools. But it is also important to emphasize the value of a cultural and sociological approach to information, people and technology as a necessary supplement to the 'hard' or behavioral side of information and information technology. This event is aimed at all those who have an interest in discussing, critiquing and questioning sociological and cultural understandings of the study of information in the 21st century. The goal is to identify the benefits and opportunities connected to a broader interpretation of iSchool research and if possible to build a network for the further discussion of questions related to this.
