You might want to do some searches around "community informatics" which is
very much concerned with ICTs and economic and social development (and
associated social change).

My current blogpost (and the associated comments) might also be of interest:

Hi All,

I'm trying to get a sense of what research collectives/networks focus
specifically on media and social change. If you know of any, could you post
to this list?

I realize this is a huge category, but I'm trying to get a sense of how this
general topic is being approached, either within-discipline, across
disciplines, or outside academia. My query is deliberately vague to try to
generate the breadth of this topic area.

(I also ask because I just returned from a workshop focused on creating a
research network on media and social change within media anthropology and
I'd like to ascertain how closely this network would align with other
efforts)

Thanks for anything you provide.  I'd be happy to share a collection of
anything that emerges from this inquiry.
