Dériving data: Wandering as a research method for Information Behaviour research
Melanie Benson, Andrew Martin Cox, Christopher Foster, Jorge Tiago Martins, Elisa Serafinelli, Xin Zhao
The dérive or drift is a technique of urban encounter developed in Pscyhogeography. It is a playful wander through the city that seeks to uncover the interesting and strange in the everyday environment around us. This SIE invites participants to share in the joy of the dérive and to join the organizers in evaluating it as a method for information behaviour research. It is also an opportunity for delegates to encounter Sheffield as a city in an interesting way.
