Communication Workshop
Chairs: Christian Christensen

Communicative practices are framed — or explicit — organizational and power structures. The interest in ICTs and communicative practices is specially in who performs what communicative practices. Under this point of view, it is also interesting to see how ICTs can impact or change organizations and power.

Discussion

What’s the purpose of communication?

Socioeconomic status, culture, trust… can act as enablers or barriers to communication.

ICTs are struggling the power structures.
