> CALL FOR PAPERS (Feel free to foreword this message to friends and
> 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
