PROFESSOR  J A N N I S   K A L L I N I K O S   

 

 

 


 

I am Professor in the Information Systems and Innovation Group, Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). As the outcome of the cultural and technological developments that mark our time, my research has over the last decade increasingly focused on the study of the social and institutional implications of the diffusion of information and information-based artefacts across the social fabric. I am particularly interested in understanding how the diffusion of technological information in all its breeds (text, voice, image) and digital formats impinges upon social life by  (re)constructing the foundations of social institutions and the patterns of interaction characteristic of everyday living. In my research I draw on a variety of social science disciplines including sociology and media, information science and semiotics, organization studies, philosophy and art theory.

 

To better accommodate these goals I have relatively recently formed the Information Growth and Internet Research (TIGAIR) group that is currently conducting research in a range of empirical settings on the formation of the new networked information environment I refer to as The Habitat of Information and the implications such an environment has for people, social processes and institutions.

 

My research and thinking on these maters are documented in a number of publications, including the recent books The Consequences of Information: Institutional Implications of Technological Change, and Governing through Technology: Information Artefacts and Social Practice, a number of recent journal articles and conference papers whose details you find in my publication list in this website. More easily accessible versions of my ideas can be found in a number of publications made in the bilingual (French/English) online discussion forum telos www.telos.eu.com  the Paristechreview ParisTech Review  and Mercury
