The purpose of this session on the topic of "Interaction and Engagement" is community building and an exploration of the ethical dimensions of information and marginality. We will examine challenges, methodologies and theoretical frameworks related to work with immigrants, and other underrepresented communities. We will use Performative Social Science (PSS) (combining oral history and auto ethnography) (Guiney Yallop, Vallejo de Lopez, & Wright, 2008) to tackle some potential limitations that stem from our privileged positions and ability to border cross in both the physical and metaphorical sense. Our goal is to foster the creation and dissemination of new knowledge in order to investigate deeper information issues and challenges with underrepresented groups. The session will appeal to scholars, researchers and practitioners interested in development work, digital divides, digital inclusion, underrepresented communities, marginality and immigration studies.
