Information and Society

The group studies institutions of culture, information and media from a social scientific standpoint.

  • We study the social missions of libraries, archives, museums and other institutions of culture, information and media, and how these have changed throughout history.
  • We study the library and archivist professions, and how social and technological change transforms the practice, role and relevance of the professions.
  • We study the contemporary and historical policies related to libraries, archives and museums, as well as other parts of the culture- and media-sector, and how it has changed due to societal and technological development.
  • We study how citizens make use of the offerings of culture-, information- and media organizations, and how the organizations work to promote and support inclusion, citizenship, democracy and the public sphere.
