"Do you work on IT or what?"  – Configurations of Heterogeneous Actors in Information Systems Design
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Science, Technology and Media, Department of Information Technology and Media. (Citizys)
2009 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In systems design a number of different categories are used, and some of these are problematic. The purpose of the paper is to explore how heterogeneous actors were configured during a systems design project. The empirical material for the study was gathered through the use of ethnographic methods, and analyzed with the help of diffraction. The conclusions are that in the project a range of agencies were configured, and these were sometimes enabling, and sometimes restricting. Furthermore the administrative officers (mostly women) in the project were configured as business experts, and this categorization made invisible their contributions as systems designers.
