    Vardagskommunikation skola . hem, delrapport 1 - Föräldrars uppfattningar nuläge och vision2005Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport redovisar resultatet från en explorativ undersökning som genomfördes bland vårdnadshavare med barn i grundskolan i Sundsvalls kommun, inom ramen för projektet �Vardagskommunikation skola-hem�. Studien som genomfördes i form av fokusgruppinterv-juer under januari 2005, utgör den första fasen i utvecklingen av en digital tjänst för främjan-de av kontakten mellan skola och hem. Projektet drivs inom ramen för Samhällets Informa-tionssystem och är ett samarbete mellan Mittuniversitetet, avdelningen för informations- och kommunikationssystem, Sundsvalls kommun, Barn- och utbildningsnämnden, samt SI. Pro-jektet fokuserar på de mjuka frågorna kring IT i samhället som demokrati, utanförskap och sociologiska frågeställningar. Syftet med studien var att kartlägga vårdnadshavares uppfattning och önskemål om innehållet och formen för kontakten mellan hem och skola. Resultatet ska ligga till grund för utforman-det av en digital tjänst med avsikt att förbättra, fördjupa och förenkla vardagskommunikatio-nen mellan hem och skola.

    "Do you work on IT or what?"  – Configurations of Heterogeneous Actors in Information Systems Design2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Entanglements of Participation, Gender, Power and Knowledge in IT Design2010Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I discuss how participation in IT design depends on howactors and IT design is defined. The argument is that participation isintertwined with gender, power and knowledge. The empirical basis for thepaper is an ethnographic study of a business process analysis in an ITdesign project in a Swedish government agency. The frame of reference isconstituted by ideas from PD and theories from feminist technoscience,and a central concept is sociomaterial practices. The empirical material isanalysed with the help of agential realism. Based on the analysis I discusshow participation in IT design in various ways is intertwined with gender,power and knowledge. One major conclusion is that the women who werethe central knowers in the business process analysis became visible asparticipants. This is related to the debate about women‟s participation in ITdesign.

    "For me it doesn't matter where I put my information": Enactments of Agency, Mutual Learning, and Gender in IT Design2010Inngår i: Gender Issues in Learning and Working with Information Technology: Social Constructs and Cultural Contexts / [ed] Shirley Booth, Sara Goodman & Gill Kirkup, IGI Global, 2010, s. 65-82Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In information technology (IT) design it is essential to develop rich and nuanced understandings of messy design realities. In this chapter Karen Barad’s agential realism is used as an analytical approach in order to obtain such a multifaceted understanding of a local IT design project. The purpose of the paper is to explore entanglements of agency, mutual learning, and gender in a business process analysis. The main argument here is that these issues were inextricably intertwined with each other and with the sociomaterial relations of which they were part. All empirical material used in the chapter was collected with the help of ethnographic methods. Finally the chapter concludes with a discussion about agential realism as an analytical approach.

    From Profession to Practices in IT Design2012Inngår i: Science, Technology and Human Values, ISSN 0162-2439, E-ISSN 1552-8251, Vol. 37, nr 6, s. 708-728Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article the argument is that in order to find women who participate in the design of IT, it is not enough to analyze gendered divisions of labor in terms of professional belongings but also to analyze the practices behind the professional categories that are involved in IT design. The purpose of the article is to explore how actors in various ways were configured during an IT design project. The article is based on an IT design project, and the empirical material for the study was gathered through the use of ethnographic methods, and analyzed diffractively. This analysis showed that the boundaries between actors shifted, that the actors were placed in several different positions, and that what was done in practices did not always fit with the formal positions. The analysis made it possible to see that in this IT design project, women were important participants on which the whole project depended. If this project is representative also for other IT design projects, the problem of women as outsiders of IT design could be rephrased, and the problem is no longer that women are not included in IT design, but that their participation does not always become visible. © The Author(s) 2012.

    Gendered Boundaries in IT Design2010Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will discuss normalization processes and their gendered consequences in

    and for IT design. The objective is to explore how organizational norms related to

    boundaries between business and IT in an IT design project were enacted, with a focus

    on the consequences for the involved actors, and for IT design as a practice. My

    argument is that these norms were in some instances reproduced – and consequently

    worked as normalizing norms – and in some instances challenged and transgressed.

    However, the transgression of these norms was met with considerable resistance.  

     

    The empirical material of the paper was gathered through ethnographic studies of an

    IT design project in a Swedish government agency, which administrates a

    part of the Swedish public social insurance system. One project objective was to

    improve the work situation for the administrative officers who worked with a

    particular social insurance, but lacked a satisfactory IT support for their work.

    Additionally, there was a second – and as it turned out more prioritized – project

    objective; to rationalise the administrative process through an automation of parts of the

    administrative process.

     

    The empirical material that was gathered was analysed diffractively. The analysis

    shows how in the project meetings and discussions the norms were sometimes

    reiterated and thus worked as normalizing norms, and how they were sometimes

    challenged and transgressed. I will especially focus on one of the project participants

     – Sonja – who transgressed the boundaries between business and IT, and thus made

    visible and challenged organizational norms about how things were done. Her

    initiative was met with resistance, and she became a person who did not fit into

    the existing organizational structure. The analysis points to how

    organisational norms in some instances work to produce organizational stability,

    rather than to facilitate change. Part of this organizational stability was the norm of IT

    design as a technological practice, and that women did not participate in this practice.

    The analysis will be discussed in relation to the question of how women are being

    removed from IT design practices – and hence how IT design remain a male dominated

    practice.

    Sitting on the Fence – Critical Explorations of Participatory Practices in IT Design2010Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about participation in IT design. The problem background that I have outlined is that information technologies have far reaching consequences for societies and for individuals, and that the design of information technologies is one among many practices that shape the world in which we live. From a democratic point of view it is crucial that also women should be involved in these reality producing practices. In relation to this there are at least two stories about women’s participation in IT design; one about their absence from IT design, and one about their inclusion therein. Based on this problem background the purpose of my research is to critically explore participatory IT design practices, with a special focus on gender, power and knowledge. In order to fulfil the purpose I have three research questions: Who participated in the IT design practices? How did knowledge come into being in these practices? How was responsibility enacted?

    My frame of reference is based on two research fields. One is Participatory Design (PD) with its focus on practitioners as co-designers in IT design practices, and the other is feminist technoscience which focuses on theories, methods, approaches, knowledge processes, and gender in technoscience practices. These two frameworks shares an interest in power relations and democratic participation in IT design. My empirical material was gathered with the help of ethnographic methods, and comes from a large IT design project in a Swedish government agency. The project was an eGovernment project, and a central objective was to rationalise the business. My focus was some (women) administrative officers who participated as business process analysts. This material was analysed with the help of feminist technoscience methodologies, foremost agential realism and diffraction.

    My thesis is based on five research papers, and the results of these are discussed and related to the research questions and the purpose. Based on an expanded notion of IT design and of participation in IT design, I argue that the administrative officers in the IT design project participated as central actors in the project. These administrative officers were able to participate within the context provided by various entangled sociomaterial practices, such as the project method, boundaries between business and IT, gendered divisions of labour, eGovernment, rationalisation, the project objectives, and an innovation practice. I also argue that in the project knowledge did not simply exist, but came into being as a result of entanglements of these sociomaterial practices, foremost the project objectives and the method. As a result of the reconfigured knowledge the administrative officers were removed to the periphery of the project. An additional argument is that with participation comes responsibility, and that responsibility is related to agency. Responsibility was enacted in and as a result of entangled sociomaterial practices. In this project the administrative officers were given and took a lot of responsibility within the boundaries provided by the sociomaterial practices, but they also worked to widen their agency and thus extend their responsibilities in the project. In relation to gender my argument is that the administrative officers in the project – who were women – participated as central actors, but they were also marginalised and made invisible. Thus in this IT design project women were included as central actors.

    As one of my contributions to PD and to feminist technoscience I want to underscore the importance of sociomaterial practices in IT design, such as IT design methods, and project objectives. These may act to restrict actors’ possibilities to act and to exert influence. Another is that knowledge in IT design practices come into being and are reconfigured as a consequence of intra-acting sociomaterial practices. Reconfigurations of knowledge might shift the power balance among actors in IT design projects and marginalise previously central actors. Responsibility too comes into being, or is enacted, in entangled sociomaterial practices. Furthermore responsibility in IT design is closely related to agency and participation, and widened agency might lead to extended possibilities to take responsibility. Additionally if positions in IT design are understood as fixed, they might make invisible more shifting and intricate professional relations and activities, and once these become visible, more women may become visible as central actors in IT design. A further contribution is that an expanded notion of IT design and participation might make women visible as central participants in IT design and in eGovernment. However, also central participants may become marginalised, as happened in this project.

    Understandings of gender and competence in ICT2005Inngår i: The Gender Politics of ICT, London: Middlesex University Press , 2005, s. 95-106Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes a study of understandings of gender and competence in ICT, among two groups of individuals who use ICT daily at their workplaces. In the study, gender and competence are seen as socially constructed. The main focus is on understandings of gender and competence among the participants in the study, along with social processes which produce, confirm or change those understandings. In the groups studied, competence in ICT was viewed as a question of interest in ICT, where men are more interested in ICT than women. Also, the results can be seen as a confirmation of the view of gender and competence as actively constructed in a social process, in that understandings of the terms were negotiated among individuals in the groups, and were used as norms with which individuals understood themselves and their behaviours. The findings are related to their possible consequences on the construction as well as the use of the Swedish 24/7 agency.

    Using a doing gender perspective in analyzing undergraduate level educations on ICT: GIST - Gender Perspectives Increasing Diversity For Information Society June 24 to 26, 20042004Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The perspective of - doing gender - implies that gender is done in everyday interactions between individuals. The purpose of this study is to point to some problems women more than men experience in undergraduate educations on ICT, and how these could be studied with a theoretical perspective of gender as something that women and men actively do in everyday interactions. This is a literature study when it comes to data; my contribution is that I�ve applied the theoretical perspective of �doing gender�, to the problems female students in undergraduate educations on ICT experience. The method can be divided into three steps; first, I analyse a number of studies made with a �doing gender� perspective, secondly, I examine what problems female student experience in undergraduate educations on ICT, and finally I apply the thinking of the �doing gender� perspective to those problems. The result is a re-definition of the problems into the thinking of the �doing gender� perspective, and my conclusion is that the problems studied with a �doing gender� perspective are not different than problems studied with other perspectives, but that the problems are viewed differently, and that somewhat different questions are asked around the problems.

    Representational practices in demands driven development of public sector2013Inngår i: Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics), 2013, s. 200-211Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns representational practices in demands driven development of public sector, and the problems they involve. The term demands driven development refers to a movement in public sector towards a closer cooperation with the citizens, primarily with regards to the development of public e-services. The objective with the paper is to explore representational practices through the analysis of practitioners' talk about demands driven development. There are several interrelated problems with representational practices, in this paper analysed through the discussions of practitioners who work with demands driven development of public sector. The conclusion is that these practitioners work with representational practices in a way which they at the same time seem to consider rather problematic. © 2013 IFIP International Federation for Information Processing.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we argue that it is not self-evident how 'requirements' are defined, but that 'requirements' are enacted differently by differently situated actors, and that this has consequences in design practices. The purpose of the paper is to explore the consequences of prototyping practices in a local IT design project. The empirical material was gathered through the use of ethnographic methods, and analysed diffractively. Graphical user interface prototypes were tools for formulating business requirements in a business process analysis. Through a reading of a discussion which took place in a work meeting about the prototypes, we discuss how business requirements were enacted. This is discussed in relation to divergent and convergent approaches in IT design. One consequence was a risk that the prototyping process moved too fast to solutions, and another was the risk that the business process analysis method reproduced the dominant story of women's absence in IT design.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish public sector is currently in a process of transformation, often referred to as e‑ Government. In this paper stories are told of problematic silences in an e‑Government implementation project in a Swedish government agency. e‑Government is discussed as something that is articulated differently by a range of actors in various locations. This enables articulations of multiple e‑Government and the multiple articulations can also be a means to contest dominant and possibly problematic articulations of e‑Government. The dominant discourse of e‑Government is the rationalisation of the public sector as a means of saving public resources. The improvement of quality and availability of public services, and to improve democratic processes are central in the dominant discourse. In this discourse there is a silence about the dismissal of employees in the public sector. There is neither talk about how the public sector is an important labour market for women nor how the rationalisation will affect the employees. Employees' knowledges are not considered as being a resource for strategic IT‑planning, and thus they are not invited to participate in the further design of IT‑systems. The purpose of the paper is to explore the participation of the administrative officers in an e‑Government implementation project, and the meanings of e‑Government articulated in the project. Ethnographic methods were used in the collection of empirical material, and central ideas in participatory design and feminist technoscience were used in the analysis. The main argument is that the administrative officers participated in an ambiguous way. They were central actors but were at the same time marginalised within the organisation. The ambiguity regarding how they participated is related to different and more inclusive articulations of e‑ Government in the project. The paper is concluded with a discussion concerning how alternative articulations of e‑Government can offer alternatives to the dominant e‑Government discourse.

In this paper stories are told of problematic silences in an eGovernment implementation project in a Swedish government agency. eGovernment is discussed as something that is articulated differently by a range of actors in various locations. This enables articulations of multiple eGovernment and the multiple articulations can also be a means to contest dominant and possibly problematic articulations of eGovernment. The dominant discourse of eGovernment is the rationalisation of the public sector as a means of saving public resources. The improvement of quality and availability of public services, and to improve democratic processes are central in the dominant discourse. In this discourse there is a silence about the dismissal of employees in the public sector. There is neither talk about how the public sector is an important labour market for women nor how the rationalisation will affect the employees. Employees’ knowledges are not considered as being a resource for strategic IT-planning, and thus they are not invited to participate in the further design of IT-systems. The purpose of the paper is to explore the participation of the administrative officers in an eGovernment implementation project, and the meanings of eGovernment articulated in the project. Ethnographic methods were used in the collection of empirical material, and central ideas in participatory design and feminist technoscience were used in the analysis. The main argument is that the administrative officers participated in an ambiguous way. They were central actors but were at the same time marginalised within the organisation. The ambiguity regarding how they participated is related to different and more inclusive articulations of eGovernment in the project. The paper is concluded with a discussion concerning how alternative articulations of eGovernment can offer alternatives to the dominant eGovernment discourse.

    Abstract [en]

    In this position statement we provide our understanding of the relation between the IS field and the notion of sustainability, and present our focus through a characterization of the “sustainability research” construct. By doing so, we hope to contribute to the discourse on a clarification of the construct itself in our research community.
