Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we describe how leadership studies have benefitted by (re)attending to practice theories. We elaborate on how these theories have offered the possibility to develop new understandings of leadership by reimagining the study of this phenomenon. 

The first section of the chapter presents an introduction to practice theories and their entrance in leadership studies. Then, in the second section, we illustrate what studies mobilizing practice theories have contributed to. In the third section we dig into a discussion of the different positionings that researchers drawing on practice theories have taken, in order to provide the reader with the possibility to navigate the sensitizing framework that these theories provide. The chapter ends with a discussion of criticalities and possibilities, including the possible need to advance our methodological tools.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we build on the concept of information literacy when exploring sensitive information in workplaces. Drawing on an empirical study of project work in a high-security organization, we find that when information is sensitive and not readily available to everyone, information literacy is only made possible because of how organizational members work collectively to make do with the sings and cues they are able and allowed to disclose to each other. In these cases, the group can only achieve information literacy together through what we call hinting

Abstract [en]

High hazard organizations are often praised for their ability to remain stable and reliable. In this paper, we draw on a longitudinal case study from 2019 to 2023 from a high hazard organization and its project work to examine how such an organization reacted to the COVID 19 pandemic. As we show, an organization prone to avoid the use of new technologies and to favor on-site work can experience a seemingly significant change while its actors do not perceive such change as significantly different. We argue that an important consideration is not whether change has happened but whether it is significantly different in light of core aspects of organizational practices, such as their teleological structure and core concerns. Indeed, a high hazard organization might thus change meeting and communicative practices while remaining the same in aspects that matter more – leading to paradoxical narratives of change and non-change to manifest simultaneously.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we share with the reader our individual and collective experience of a reading circle organised during the pandemic, at a time of social distancing. The collective reading allowed ‘us’ to become-with other humans, non-humans, and more-than-humans with the materiality of different bodies. The reading circle allowed individual vulnerability to be shared in a process of becoming-together a multiple ‘Author’ who authored a ‘Composition’. We thus propose to the reader a Composition, in which we experiment with an embodied process of writing, where a drawing and words are mingled in-between poesy and prose. In their being intertwined, reading- and writing-together enabled a different ‘academicity’, emerging as an alternative to an individualistic experience of the neo-liberal Academia.

Abstract [en]

More than resource allocations, evaluations of funding applications have become central instances for status bestowal in academia. Much attention in past literature has been devoted to grasping the status consequences of prominent funding evaluations. But little attention has been paid to understanding how the status-bestowing momentum of such evaluations is constructed. Throughout this paper, our aim is to develop new knowledge on the role of applicants in constructing certain funding evaluations as events with crucial importance for status bestowal. Using empirical material from retrospective interviews with Sweden-based early-career scientists who, successfully or unsuccessfully, applied for European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants, our findings show how these scientists interlinked experiences from various practices to construct the ERC's evaluations, in general, and the final-stage appointments at Brussels' Madou Plaza Tower, in particular, as apex-esque, crescendo-like status-bestowing events. We discuss our findings as instructional, preparatory, and demarcative practices that, by extension, distribute responsibility for the construction and reinforcement of high-stakes, career-defining evaluations through which considerable stress and anxiety is generated in academia.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores how automation efforts with the intent to control work in modern work places can unfold. Building on a longitudinal study of a governmental agency’s efforts to implement automated work delivery technology to enforce work guidelines, I show how aspects of work might become more automated but the rationale of automation might fail to manifest as originally intended. Technology and the formal structure inscribed into it to control work might conflict with the demands of work practice. Moreover, the findings show how automated control can be resisted by workers through subversive organizing in teams to reacquire work discretion. Through an analysis of automated control in practice, this paper contributes to discussions of technologies of control and how pragmatic resistance can emerge to counteract such technology.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the experiences of a detailed security check that the first author of this paper had do subject himself to in order to gain research access to a high-security facility where he is to perform an ethnographic study. In doing so, the paper accounts for a stressful experience, the intensities, i.e. the affective dimensions, of gaining research access. These are tied to wider discussions concerning the role of imagination -and how imagination exists in relation to a reseach group.
