Research Overview

My research focus is the phenomenon of technology broadly defined and information technology more narrowly defined. Within the area of technology studies I have three enduring concerns (a) theorising the relationship 'between' the social and the technical, (b) technology and its relationship with processes of organising (such as virtual organisations, collaborative working, etc) and (b) the ethical and moral implications of technology for society (such as privacy, surveillance, etc). Within these areas my research approach has always been qualitative and mostly informed by phenomenology and process philosophy. Specifically my focal concern is the way in which information technology transforms social spaces and practices (both individual and collective spaces and practices).
