Tuesday 25 October - What is a Technological Revolution?

Over the last several centuries swarms of innovations have periodically altered the technical infrastructures on which the production systems of Western societies rest. This talk provides a framework for thinking about our past and future by arguing that control systems are the target of today’s cutting edge technological developments which, if successful, will end having automated of the components of production processes.


Wednesday 26 October - How Do Technologies Change Organisations?

In order to change organisations new technologies must do more than alter work practices, they must also occasion changes in role relationships which, by definition, change the networks that constitute organisational structures I develop this perspective by drawing on the work of Irving Goffman and other symbolic interactionists to propose a framework for pragmatically bridging the material and social aspects of technological change.


Thursday 27 October - Managing the Fears of Studying Technical Work

Doing ethnographies of technical work presents challenges unlike those encountered when doing fieldwork in other settings. This talk offers tips for how to manage these challenges based on thirty years trial and error learning while confronting the fears of doing ethnographies of technical occupations.
