Apologies for cross-posting across the various SIG lists...




SIG-CRIT investigates conceptual issues in information science and studies using philosophical, historiographical, rhetorical, social, and cultural approaches within a broad, interdisciplinary framework of "critical theory."  The purpose of this SIG is to bring together researchers in these areas, to create connections between various research agendas and national traditions, and to create an intellectually deeper and socially richer interdisciplinary dialogue between information science and other fields in the social and human sciences. 

According to the ASIST by-laws, 50 ASIST members are needed to form a new SIG.  If you are interested in taking part in this exciting new SIG please email ronday at wayne.edu with the subject line: "crit" .
