Short presentation

My research concerns the consequences of digitalization for societies, organizations, groups and individuals, more recently with special emphasis on technological (digital) disengagement and issues of resistance, detraction, and disillusionment that sometimes arise in connection with digitalisation. What constitutes meaningful technological encounters is an increasingly important issue in today's post-digital society.

Keywords: cultural theory practice theory materiality technology non-use socio-materiality social ontologies mediatization network analysis digital society organizational communication digitalization
