NuDIMS. Séamas Kelly, "Against Information: Towards a more Embodied/ Materialist conception of Knowledge, Communication and ICT"
You are cordially invited to the next NuDIMS seminar. Dr Séamas Kelly from the Centre for Innovation, Technology & Organisation (CITO), UCD School of Business, University College Dublin, will present on "Against Information: Towards a more Embodied/ Materialist conception of Knowledge, Communication and ICT". In this talk, I suggest that recent contributions to the ‘knowledge management’ literature could be taken to constitute an important epistemic shift for the IS/ organisation studies fields, which may yield promising new approaches to the theorisation of information, communication, and forms of ICT-mediated social interaction. Specifically, I argue that a move away from an overly ‘intellectualist’ conception of information and communication (and attendant forms of representationalism), offers the prospect of re-conceptualising the role of ICT as a complementary mode of engagement with the lifeworld, which may facilitate distinctive forms of collective sensemaking/ learning. Moreover, I suggest that by conceptualising such processes as a duality of reification and social participation (following Wenger 1998), the specific material constitution of the technology (i.e. the form of the medium), and its significance for mediating and shaping important features of social interaction and the relationships that underpin them, is brought firmly into the analytical foreground. Amongst other things, this may offer promising opportunities for a more substantive theorisation of the ICT artefact (see Monteiro et al. 1996; Orlikowski et al. 2001). As a tentative first step in this new terrain, I offer the concept of ‘digiscribing’ as an alternative to Zuboff’s (1988) influential notion of ‘informating’, as a means of thinking about the relationship between information, ICT and organisation. The ideas are illustrated and developed with reference to an in-depth, interpretive study of groupware implementation and use at a large global consulting services firm.
