Triangular 2008 : updated call for papers
Call for Papers
The call for papers invites scholars from IS and organizational studies to present preliminary research findings and/or challenging theoretical and methodological issues concerning their research. Acceptance will be competitive and numbers limited. We anticipate presentations to be theoretically diverse encompassing Institutional Theory, Ethnomethodology, Phenomenology, Theories of Practice, Actor-Network Theory, and others. Research areas will cover 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.
The conference will invest significant time for each individual to present and discuss their research project with faculty and peers. We encourage you to consider this event as a forum for collective help giving and learning for which attendees will diligently prepare and openly share research difficulties. Faculty would respectively commit to providing detailed feedback and to facilitate discussions around emergent themes. We expect a collage of conceptually and methodologically diverse presentations, provoking in-depth discussions in an informal and intimate setting.
Invited Speaker and Discussion
We are pleased to announce Professor Dermot Moran from UCD’s School of Philosophy as our invited speaker. Dermot will introduce a discussion to engage the faculty to re-examine phenomenology and questioning its use in Organisation and IS studies. We anticipate that Professor Moran’s philosophical intervention (facilitated by Professor Lucas Introna) will bring fresh insights into Phenomenologically oriented IS and Organisational research and encourage interesting discussion about its trajectories.
