A Special Issue of The International Journal of Information, Diversity, &
Inclusion (IJIDI)


We seek to bring together researchers from the information fields broadly
construed, along with researchers in related disciplines, to showcase a
range of concepts, practices, and methodologies available for deeper
engagement with issues related to forced migration. We invite work offering
diverse perspectives on forced migration as a means of enriching our
understanding of the range of actors involved in this complex ecosystem.
Contributions to this special issue may look at forced migration through
the lens of information and media practices, embodied experiences, memory
work and curation, discourses and practices around diversity, and community
building in a global and digital world. This approach will pave the way for
a broader interdisciplinary conversation on forced migration.

We welcome a broad spectrum of submissions that touch on the following

   - Frameworks that account for diverse information practices related to
   forced migration (including material, symbolic, affective dimensions);
   - The evolution of conceptual frameworks for understanding forced
   migration in an age of migration and displacement (including the role of
   social media and online spaces in creating/regaining a sense of place;
   credibility and assessment; multilingual interactions; user-generated
   - Current and future roles of cultural and memory institutions as
   resources on, and sites for, the documentation and curation of migration
   experiences and practices in our networked world (i.e., How can we best
   make space for refugees? Voice and agency);
   - Understanding the role of design, meaning-making, authenticity, and
   performativity in the context of diverse migratory experiences;
   - Practical initiatives and case studies from libraries, museums,
   archives, non-profit and settlement sectors, NGOs, policymaking and
   governance bodies around engaging and working with refugees and other
   forced migrants.

We invite fully developed research papers for the Articles section, as well
as shorter submissions for the Special sections; the latter may include
opinion/viewpoint pieces, work in progress, reports from the field,
doctoral projects, and theory-to-practice essays.
