Information pathways through the lens of informatics

Stories have always allowed us to share and inhabit multiple worlds and identities, but information technologies designed to increase access have also created invisible obstacles, like algorithmic bias, dubious search suggestions and sheer overload. An approach based on informatics--how society and technologies intertwine--can help reveal invisible obstacles to seeking, finding and creating information, and yield more inclusive information services. In this talk, we’ll discuss examples of how pathways to information travel through people, communities and technologies in ways that are not always obvious, and how tracing these pathways can reveal ways to target information services to maximize access, participation, and understanding.
