Discourse Analysis and its Implications on IS Research
The Information System Seminar Series features, Egil Øvrelid, a Post-Doctoral fellow at Department of Informatics, UiO
The talk will focus on discourse analysis, particularly inspired by the French historian Michel Foucault and his work around the “archaeological” approach to the history of thought / knowledge.
Egil Øvrelid will give a brief historical backdrop on discourse analysis / discourse theory, and reflect on how this can be particularly relevant in the field of Information systems research. In doing so, he will reflect on the origin of Foucault's discourse analysis and its inspirations. He will discuss how he has used these ideas in the context of his own research
