Social Studies of Technology


Since September 2014 Juliane Jarke is postdoctoral researcher in the Information Management Group in the Faculty of Mathematics/Informatics at Bremen University. Her post-doc research project is entitled: Open government data practices: the example of civic hacking. From December 2013 to August 2014 she worked as a research associate at the “Centre for the Study of Technology and Organisation” at Lancaster University.

In 2013 she completed her PhD in „Organisation, Work and Technology” at Lancaster University Management School with a thesis entitled “Performances of Associations: Sociomaterial orderings and configurations of a European eGovernment ‘community of practice’”. Prior to her PhD studies she earned degrees in MSc Information Technology, Management and Organisational Change (Lancaster University, 2007); MA Philosophy (Hamburg University, 2008) and BSc Informatics (Hamburg University, 2005). She has worked as a research fellow in public sector consulting and participated in a number of European eGovernment projects. In 2008 she completed a five-months traineeship with the European Commission DG Information Society and Media related to research in data infrastructures. Since June 2009 she serves as an independent expert to the European Commission within the areas eInfrastructures and Digital Science.

Research interests

Inspired by the ever-growing entanglement of social objectives and technological tools as their means of implementation and facilitation, she is interested in the ways socio-technical systems work and are made to work by looking at the interactions of people, technologies, organisation and practice. The themes she has engaged in cover technology-mediated collaboration across boundaries, social and innovative media technologies and public sector innovation projects.

Her research intersects the boundaries of Organisation Studies and Information Systems Research. Conceptually she draws on Science and Technology Studies (STS), and in particular Actor-Network Theory (ANT). Methodologically she has adopted an ethnographic approach which requires in-depth, longitudinal qualitative research.

Specific research domains:

  • Public sector transformation and innovation;
  • Organising, knowing and learning in large-scale, technology-mediated communities;
  • Big data and data infrastructures in virtual research communities.
