    Another Wood Between the Worlds?: Regimes of Worth and the Making of Meanings in the Work of Archivists2015In: The Information Society, ISSN 0197-2243, E-ISSN 1087-6537, Vol. 31, no 2, p. 121-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through interviews of Nordic archives professionals, this article explicates the transformation and complexities of the worth and meaning of archival records and archival work. The analysis shows how the worth and meaning of archival records and the work of archivists are constituted in a complex interplay of quasi-institutionalized orders of archival work, their associated but often conflicting regimes of worth and information, and changing local intermediary practices.

    Awkwardness of becoming a boundary object: Mangle and materialities of reports, documentation data and the archaeological work2016In: The Information Society, ISSN 0197-2243, E-ISSN 1087-6537, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 280-297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Information about an archaeological investigation is documented in an archaeological report that makes it the boundary object par excellence for archaeological information work across stakeholder communities from field archaeologists to heritage managers and land developers. The quality of reports have been a subject of debate and recently it has been argued that more emphasis should be placed on making primary research data at least similarly available as the reports. This study explores the changing materialities and reciprocal formation of documents and their users in the advent of digitisation, and how documents become and lose their status as boundary objects in these processes. The study posits that in order to be functional, a boundary object needs to provide a disclosure, means to access reality for adjacent communities. Further, it shows how assumptions of the functioning of the human and non-human (material artefacts) influence the ways how the archaeologists conceptualise the preservation and archiving of archaeological information and the role and potential of different types of digital and paper-based documents. This article is based on an interview study of Swedish archaeology professionals (N=16) with theoretical underpinnings in the notions of boundary objects, mangle of practice and disclosure.

    Putting to (information) work: A Stengersian perspective on how information technologies and people influence information practices2018In: The Information Society, ISSN 0197-2243, E-ISSN 1087-6537, Vol. 34, no 4, p. 229-243Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Instead of merely subscribing to an unspecific inseparability in the co-constitution or mangle of information technologies and human-actors, there is a need for conceptual tools to describe and explicate the mechanics of how the enmeshment of technologies and human-beings is occurring in information contexts: how information technologies are both setting standards of the social conduct of information practices, and how people are using information technologies to regulate the social process. Building on an empirical study of human-technology relations in the context of archaeological information work, this article discusses how the imaginary of putting Stengers to work can make a contribution to such an end. Stengers describes an ideal system of human-actors and technology working seamlessly World-as-Clockthat is unattainable but can serve as a benchmark and a lens for understanding frictions and discrepancies in the cohesion of the two.

    Understanding Nonuse of Interactivity in Online Newspapers: Insights From Structuration Theory2012In: The Information Society, ISSN 0197-2243, E-ISSN 1087-6537, Vol. 28, no 4, p. 253-263Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While some online newspapers have embellished their online presence with a variety of interactive features, most online newspapers still appear to take on the role of cautious traditionalists, adopting a mostly conservative stance toward the new medium. Correspondingly, most audience members appear to act in a similar way. This article shows how concepts related to structuration theory can be utilized to further our theoretical understanding of the use (and nonuse) of interactive features in the online newspaper context. It employs concepts from the structuration theory to provide another interpretation of the existing empirical research. The paper concludes by suggesting that "nonuse" in this regard can be understood as part of reproducing what might be called a "structure of audiencehood" rather than a "structure of prosumerism."
