The New Information State: How Information Ethics and Policy Affects Everyone

In today’s milieu of fake news, misinformation, and generalized distrust of institutions, information ethics and policy affects everyone, across different information science research areas. In this workshop, we will analyze these changes to the informational state and discuss how we can address them through three themes: pedagogy for information ethics and policy, engagement with policymakers, and information ethics and policy across information science. Workshop participants are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways and will leave the workshop with tangible products that can be used in research and teaching.
