Whose Agenda: Action, Research, & Politics
Wednesday, 6 Nov - Friday, 8 Nov 2019
Monash University | Prato Centre, Italy
Action, Research, & Politics
ABOUT THE THEME: What is our role as researchers and practitioners in fields committed to the well-being of people and their communities? Against a backdrop of international data oligopolies, how is technology challenging our understanding of community dynamics and information sovereignty? Alternatively, how can technology and research engagement be refocussed to empower individuals and communities in addressing social inequalities? The 17th annual CIRN conference, Action, Research, & Politics, aims to address these questions and more.
WHO IS IN ATTENDANCE: This year’s conference welcomes academics, practitioners, and researchers working in Community Informatics, Information & Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) Informatics, Participatory Information Governance, Recordkeeping Informatics, Community Archives, Cultural Informatics, and beyond (e.g., Health Informatics) to listen, learn, and discuss research and practice in international and domestic politics, policy, and advocacy.
