Information Studies is widely regarded as a new and emerging field — and has been for several decades. The rise of "I Schools" and demands for the development of a science of information makes the time ripe for a clarification of the core concerns of I-Studies. I will introduce and invite discussion of ideas about how that might be achieved through a more careful view of "information", of "knowledge", and of being "interdisciplinary" and what kind of "science" this field could be.
