International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation (IJANTTI) Volume 7, Issue 4

Book Description

The International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation (IJANTTI) publishes research articles covering a wide range of topics related to Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and its use as a means of exploring socio-technical phenomena. An important goal for the journal is to facilitate publication of the body of research relating to the use of Actor-Network Theory as a means of understanding various socio-technical phenomena and providing examples and case studies of technological innovation. The journal facilitates the distribution of a wide range of research of this type. Much, but not all, of this research relates to the implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), as these inevitably involve interactions between technology and people. This is the area in which ANT is particularly useful and articles along these lines are encouraged. Other areas of special interest are the use of ANT as an analytical framework for research in education and in nursing. This journal covers a range of topics related to ANT. These topics include the development of Actor-Network Theory itself, as well as case studies of its use to assist in the explanation of various socio-technical phenomena. It also includes topics relating to technological innovation, both those using ANT as an explanatory framework and those using other approaches.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Failure to Launch: Scope Creep and Other Causes of Failure from an Actor-Network Theory Perspective
  • The Fractal Spiral Model in Integrative Trauma Processing
  • Strategizing E-Government Development Using an Actor-Network Theory Perspective
  • The Role of Gossip in the Creation and Miscreation of Company Identity from the Perspective of Actor-Network Theory
  • The Internet of Things and Beyond: Rise of the Non-Human Actors
