Abstract (type = abstract)
This dissertation takes a qualitative approach to investigating the inter-relatedness of urban space and socio-technical practices, drawing on the experiences of transnational newcomers in New York City. Accounts from 18 transnational newcomers, all of whom had arrived in New York within the past two years, form the core text of analysis. In contrast to research on transnational use of information and communication technologies that focuses on a single nationality, participants hailed from 18 different countries; they also ranged in age, profession, socio-economic background, and neighborhood in New York. The heterogeneity of participants allows for the identification of information and technological practices that emerged across these different facets of identity. Three qualitative research tools were deployed in this analysis: conversational interviews, participatory maps and walks through participants’ neighborhoods. Findings are divided into three chapters: information practices used to become familiar with city space, newcomer relationships to the city, and the link between technology and identity work. This research suggests implications for library and information science theory related to how “everyday life” is conceptualized, as well as the design of online maps and games related to urban space.
