There exists many different streams of user-centered research in the information disciplines. My current research focuses on the implicit and explicit theories of technology, documents, and information/knowledge/knowing that the different - both historical and current user research traditions build upon.

My overall research interests can be summarized as:

  • the historical origins, background and persistence of the conceptual machinery (widely accepted concepts, theories and models) in information science
  • the integrated study of practices (work practices, knowledge practices, and collaboration practices), knowledge domains with their documentary genres, and technical artifacts.

Other current issues and involvement:

  • e-science and scholarly communication and collaboration practices
  • the ongoing integration of the information disciplines both from theoretical and professional viewpoints
  • the field and practice of information architecture - the epitome of this integration.

The intellectual traditions I mainly draw on and align myself with are practice theory, science and technology studies, organizational learning and knowledge management, computer supported cooperative work and workplace studies.
