Ephemera workshop

IGNORANCE AT WORK:
The practices and politics of
organized ignorance

29 September 2020, 13:30-17:30
CBS, Kilen, room 4.74
 




Workshop Organizers:

Morten Knudsen (IOA) 
Justine Grønbæk Pors (MPP)
Birke Otto (MPP; European University Frankfurt/Oder)

Big data, transparency, and sharing as governing organizing models reflect how organizations are compelled to steadily seek information and produce knowledge. A focus on these imperatives though distracts attention from such daily organizational practices that rely on avoiding, skirting and abstaining from palpable knowledge. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and reflect the politics and efficacies of mobilizing non-knowledge and strategic ignorance as a social practice - rather than an individual act of ignoring. Kate Kenny (NUY Galway), Nanna Bonde Thylstrup (CBS) and Linsey McGoey (University of Essex) will present various dimensions (practices, artefacts, affects, infrastructures and organizational rationalities) of ignoring and being ignored as social manifestation of the desire to produce knowledge and truth in contemporary organization.

There is a limited number of places available for the workshop, please sign up.
