CALL FOR SIG INTEREST AND MEMBERSHIP<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
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" .
