Social Theory in Information Systems Research
Call For Papers:
AMCIS Mini-track: Social Theory in Information Systems Research (STIR 2010)
16th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS), Lima Peru, August 12-15, 2010
Conference Website: http://www.amcis2010.org/home/
This Mini Track solicits research papers, research-in-progress papers, and panel proposals on social theory in information systems research. This will be the 11th consecutive year for the Mini Track at AMCIS, and we hope to continue a tradition of high quality paper submissions, thought-provoking presentations and lively discussion for all IS researchers using, or considering the use of, social theory in their work.
Within this Mini Track, we seek to attract research papers, research-in-progress papers, and panels from all IS researchers who are using the work of social theorists, organizational theorists, sociotechnical theorists, and cultural anthropologists in their research.
Possible Topics: We want to highlight research that uses social theory, sociotechnical theory, and social informatics approaches to critically examine the constitution of information and communications technologies, and their roles in organizations and society. For example, the work of social theorists (e.g., Callon, Castells, Bourdieu, Giddens, Putnam), organizational theorists (e.g., Powell, DiMaggio, Scott), sociotechnical theorists (e.g., Bijker , Hughes, Kling), cultural anthropologists (e.g., D'Andrade, Holland, Suchman), symbolic interactionists (e.g., Strauss , Star), and many others are being used to address the most important questions about IS, organizations, and society. We invite IS research that applies, builds on, compares, or critiques these social theories.
Full paper submissions must be made electronically through the AMCIS on-line submission system (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com:80/amcis2010), by February 26, 2010. Papers should not exceed 5,000 words, including all attachments.
