New journal of interest with SOIC faculty connection

Posted by Robert Noel, Sciences Librarian

Now available to the IU Bloomington community, Routledge’s new journal “Internet Histories: Digital Technology, Culture and Society”, launched earlier this year.

IU School of Informatics associate professor Nathan Ensminger is serving on the Editorial Board of the journal, and glancing at the first issue, one can see its multidisciplinary nature.  This new publication is likely to be of interest to computer scientists, network engineers, librarians, as well as historians and media scholars, with v. 1, #1 covering topics such as the digital divide, social histories of the Internet, and screencast documentaries. From the journal’s home page:  “Internet Histories aims to publish a range of scholarship that examines the global and internetworked nature of the digital world as well as situated histories that account for diverse local contexts.”  If you have questions about this, or access to other informatics journals, please contact Bob Noel, liaison librarian to the School of Informatics and Computing.
