It is the researcher who writes science, who states and inscribes a representation of the world for others to consume. In a sense all science can be thought of as concerned with the “manipulation of inscriptions and statements” John Law, After Method, 2004.
The Triangular Conference is the second annual triangular symposium organised jointly by Lancaster University, University of Cambridge and University College Dublin. The forum is co-chaired by Séamas Kelly, Lucas Introna, and Matthew Jones; bringing three schools and research programmes together to debate in an intimate, relaxed and informal setting. This year’s event is hosted by the Centre for Innovation, Technology & Organisation at UCD School of Business.
The vision for the triangular conference is to create a place to focus on discussion rather than presentation, to debate in an intimate, relaxed and informal setting.
Our research addresses a spectrum of settings and organisational challenges – for example, developing countries, health care, business ethics, environmental issues, software development, IS implementation and adoption, and E-government. We consider theoretically diverse research encompassing Institutional Theory, Ethnomethodology, Phenomenology, Theories of Practice, Actor-Network Theory, and others.
