Bringing STS and the sociologies of work and organization together. A joint perspective for understanding digitalization?
Sprache des Titels:
In this panel, we want to invite scholars from STS, sociology of work and sociology of organization, to shed light on the digitalization of work in organizations with a joint perspective. We perceive the emerging research on the phenomenon of digitalization of work and organizations as an opportunity and necessity to bring STS on the one hand and sociology of work and sociology of organization on the other hand closer together. Therefore, we want to encourage a recursively nourishing debate between researchers working in those scientific communities. Contributions for this panel could reach from STS research, concerned with digitalization of work and organizations to papers from the sociologies of work or organization using or integrating concepts from STS to scrutinize the digitalization of work in organizations. We also especially welcome scholars curious in exploring this intersection with their submissions. Of course, contributions can be work-in-progress discussing current obstacles and challenges of combining STS and the sociologies of work and organization in one or another way. Consequently we invite researchers with theoretical, conceptual and empirical papers.
