CALL FOR SIG INTEREST AND MEMBERSHIP<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = 
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

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 <mailto:ronday at wayne.edu>ronday at wayne.edu with the subject line: "crit" .
