Description

CROS: Sociomateriality Methods Workshop

The Critical Reorientations of Organizations and Society Research Group (CROS) and the Department of Management, Monash Business School invite you to attend a methods workshop on Sociomateriality.

This event was motivated by a desire among CROS members to further our understanding of methods in sociomaterial research and to foster cross-disciplinary discussion. Sociomateriality covers a broad theoretical church under which various positions can differ in terms of their ontology, epistemology and politics. However, they broadly seek to explore how sociocultural aspects of life intertwine with materiality. As such, sociomaterial methods are concerned with tracing human and non-human connections, emphasising the relationality and dependency patterns that constitute given phenomena.

It is our pleasure to welcome three speakers for the event:-

Dr Ashley Barnwell is the Ashworth Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Melbourne. Her research is in cultural sociology and social theory. She has written on affect theory and sociomaterial methodologies, most recently in ‘Method Matters: The Ethics of Exclusion’ in What if Culture Was Nature All Along? (Vicki Kirby (Ed.) Edinburgh University Press, 2017). She is currently writing a book entitled Critical Affect: The Politics of Method. Ashley will discuss: What Matters? Defining a New Materialist Field.

Dr Robin Canniford is co-director of the Cluster for the study of Organization, Society and Markets (COSM) at the University of Melbourne. His work has been published in Sociology, Marketing Theory and The Journal of Consumer Research, and he co-edited Assembling Consumption: Researching actors, networks and markets (Routledge, 2015). He is particularly interested in the intersections of 'nature' and markets. Robin will discuss: How is ‘nature’ connected to markets?

Dr Brady Robards is Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at Monash University. His research explores how young people use and produce social media. Brady's work appears in New Media & Society, Young, Continuum, and Sociology. Recent books include Youth Cultures & Subcultures: Australian Perspectives (Ashgate, 2015), Mediated Youth Cultures (Palgrave, 2014) and Teaching Youth Studies Through Popular Culture (ACYS Publishing, 2014). Brady will discuss: A 'scroll back' method incorporating the digital traces of social media into in-depth semi-structured interviews.

This workshop will be held at Monash Caulfield Campus. It will include a catered morning tea and a lunch.
