    Theorizing affective ethnography for organization studies2019In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 26, no 6, p. 741-760Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article introduces a new label, 'Affective Ethnography', and grounds it within the debates on post-qualitative methodologies and affective methodologies. Affective ethnography is theorized as a style of research practice that acknowledges that all elements-texts, actors, materialities, language, agencies-are already entangled in complex ways, and that they should be read in their intra-actions, through one another, as data in motion/data that move. I discuss three pillars for affective ethnographies that relate to researchers' presence in doing fieldwork and their bodily capacity to affect/be affected. The first is embodiment and embodied knowing. Doing fieldwork implies the ability to resonate with, becoming-with, and the capacity for affective attunement. The second aspect relates to place as flow, and process-to placeness. The third relates to affect as the power to act and therefore to the presence in the fieldwork of the capacity to 'make do', either intentionally or unintentionally.

    To start practice theorizing anew: The contribution of the concepts of agencement and formativeness2016In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 23, no 5, p. 680-698Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The journal Organization was a precursor of the turn to practice with its 2000 Special Issue, and the burgeoning number of special issues between 2000 and 2011 testifies to the vitality of a field under construction. Nowadays, the consolidation of the field makes it possible to start to understand and spell out differences and, in so doing, to promote lines of practice theorizing with a greater internal consistency. This article contributes to the articulation of differences among various practice theories and within a practice-based theorizing inspired by the sociology of translation. It proposes two conceptsagencement and formativenessthat address two blind spots' in the conversation on the turn to practice. The first blind spot concerns how we can talk of practices as having agency and the second concerns how we can articulate knowing in practice as a doing while inventing the way of doing', that is, the creative entanglement of knowing and doing. I shall address these two blind spots' by saying that one difficulty in addressing them is created by language. Hence, if we want to turn to practice anew, we need to invent/discover/reconfigure a new vocabulary with which to shape new concepts or to circulate existing ones better.

    Automating to control: The unexpected consequences of modern automated work delivery in practice2021In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 115-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Videographic profanations: A companion to the videography "Pride: Alternative Entrepreneurship Enjoyed"2022In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is a companion to "Pride: Alternative Entrepreneurship Enjoyed," a videography about the company Prezi's engagement in the Budapest Pride parade. The aim is to advance video ethnographic methods within Organization and Management Studies (OMS) based on Agamben's profanatory philosophical method, which puts into focus abstract "sacred" concepts and returns them to the sphere of the profane-of the everyday. A profanatory approach of use for OMS accounts for organizations, brands, and management in a way that do not reproduce their "sacredness"-entrepreneurial myths and management cliches. Instead, by opening them up to critical exposure, they can be moved from a "religious canon" of communication strategies, press releases, and policy documents, to everyday profane work. Through a methodological discussion of the videography, we show three ways in which profanation re-positions the myth of alternative entrepreneurship: by engaging in the logic of the sacred, by playing with notions of inside and outside, and by using musical soundtrack as an expressive tool. We suggest that these methodological strategies advance the analytical possibilities within video ethnography, also useful for other organizational phenomena, especially when economic interests are combined with ambitions of social change and ideals of self-realization.

    'Doggy-biopolitics’: Governing via the First Dog2017In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 240-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Biopolitics, traditionally understood as management of the human population, has been extended to include nonhuman animal life and posthuman life. In this article, we turn to literatures that advance Foucauldian biopolitics to explore the mode of government enabled by the dog of the US presidential family – the First Dog called Bo Obama. With analytical focus on vitalisation efforts, we follow the construction of Bo in various outlets, such as the websites of the White House and an animal rights organisation. Bo’s microphysical escapades and the negotiation thereof show how contemporary biopolitics, which targets the vitality of the dog population, is linked to seductive neoliberal management techniques and subjectivities. We discuss ‘cuddly management’ in relation to Foucauldian scholarship within organisation and management studies and propose that the construction of Bo facilitates interspecies family norms and an empathic embrace of difference circumscribed by vitalisation efforts that we pinpoint as ‘doggy-biopolics'.
