Oxford handbook of information and communication technologies
Those who study the economy, organizations, or people's everyday lives, sometimes depict ICTs as calling into existence a new, inclusive, social and economic order. Others regard these technologies as dystopian determinants of social inequality. However, there are many strands of research within the social sciences that are yielding insights about the very complex ways in which ICTs are woven into the fabric of society. We invited contributions from researchers who are sensitive to the need to develop research which avoids the strongest forms of technological determinism and of its counterpart, social constructivism. ICTs are regarded by the contributors to this book as being neither transformational, nor entirely malleable by their users. Although ICTs feature prominently in this volume, the authors see these technologies as potential enablers, not as the determinants, of particular cultural, organizational, social, political, or economic outcomes.
