As a program of the SIG for History and Foundations (SIG-HFIS), this alternative event focuses on developing a vision for conceptual, philosophical, theoretical and historical work in information science. This event will provide a participatory platform to investigate questions such as: What is the domain of history and foundations? How does it relate to other research areas in the information field? The event will involve panelist interviews with diverse scholars, small-group discussions of big questions for history and foundations, and the presentation of a new idea-sharing platform, the HFIS Wishlist. This event will be a locus for participation and inspiration regarding historical and foundations work in information science as part of formulating a future vision for SIG-HFIS, ASIS&T, and the information field more broadly.
