Course Summary

Information Studies has a vibrant research culture that investigates a range of topics in the fields of information studies and digital culture, and digital humanities. Rapid technological change, massive volumes of digital information of increasing complexity, that is both global and mobile pose significant challenges to our individual and collective use and curation of information. Fundamental concepts such as identity, memory, authenticity, trust, transparency, accountability, representation, engagement, preservation and access are important aspects of information studies in a digital era. These concerns demand a fresh theoretical approach, a deeper understanding of the nature of information and innovative solutions that connect theory with practice, people with information and technology with humanity. Our research focuses on the following areas: Theoretical approaches to information; Management, Curation and Evaluation of Digital Assets; Archive, Records and (Personal) Information Management; Digital Heritage, Digital Museology & Digital Humanities; Entertainment and information access systems; Topics of particular interest.
