CALL FOR PAPERS (Feel free to foreword this message to friends and colleagues.)

The summer 2007 issue of the online journal Information for Social Change 
(ISC) will focus on the urgent theme of library and information workers as 
political actors in times of war, civil war, military occupation, and 
social conflicts worldwide.

ISC seeks both contemporary and historical submissions that address such 
topics as:

-- Library and information provision during times of war, civil war, 
military occupation, and social conflict that provide insights and 
practical strategies for potential library and information projects in 
regions of conflict worldwide.

-- Profiles of library and information workers as participants and 
interventionists in conflicts, as political actors that offer some new 
possibilities for strategies of resistance, or that challenge networks of 
military or civil control worldwide.

-- Access to library and information provision and the information needs of 
oppressed peoples for empowerment and emancipation during times of war, 
revolution, or social conflict worldwide.

-- Dissemination of information about inside conflicts to the outside 
world.  Here, ISC is particularly interested in explorations of how to 
protect the information provider in terms of privacy; confidentiality; 
freedom of opinion and expression; freedom of thought, conscience and 
religion; peaceful assembly and association; and protection from torture or 
cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment as expressed in the 
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948).

Note: ISC has a special interest in receiving, publishing, documenting, and 
giving memory to information about conflicts on which very little 
information has been recorded to date.

Anyone interested in contributing an article, thought piece, bibliography, 
review, or other work related to the expressed theme is invited to share 
their ideas with issue co-editors Martyn Lowe 
(<mailto:martynlowe at usa.net>martynlowe at usa.net) AND Toni Samek 
(<mailto:toni.samek at ualberta.ca>toni.samek at ualberta.ca).

The closing date for submission is December 10, 2006 (HUMAN RIGHTS DAY).
Word limits are negotiable with Martyn and Toni.
