> 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.
