Spotlight: Designing Technology, Work, Organizations and Vice Versa

Technology, work, and organizations are three main pillars of contemporary societies. Much has been written about each of them separately as well as about their interrelations. This volume collects empirical cases and conceptual discussions which explicitly look for the close interweaving of work, technology, and organizations by questioning their design. Unlike similar works this volume uses the idea of design as a sensitizing concept in order to unpack and at the same time highlight the complex relations between form and function, between creating and doing. Common themes include: heterogeneous engineering, sociomateriality, performativity, situated action and knowledge, invisible work and design trajectories.
