Special Issue on the International Journal of Sociotechnology and Knowledge
Development.
Call for papers - Rethinking Technology Transfer projects: Culture and
Communicating Knowledge in Developing Regions.
Culture and knowledge communication practices underlie important challenges
that face those who work in, and with, developing regions and technology.
The tacit understandings inherent in these practices  also deal with the
problems encountered with innovation and implementation of ICT and related
enabling technologies involving difficult physical environments, limited
technological infrastructure and social gaps, misunderstandings and conflicts.
This issue intends to ask important questions about the connection between
knowledge and communication when culture operates as a medium and not
just as an object.  This tension between knowledge and culture manifests
itself in the communication between the different stakeholders, their priorities
and interpretive frames.
*       What is persuasive and invasive about technology and how is the
local culture changed by its introduction?
*       How are local stakeholders considered in the conception and planning
of technology transfer projects?
*       What cultural problems arise in communicating knowledge about
technology and using technology to communicate knowledge in developing
regions?
*       How are technological knowledge and situational knowledge
communicated by the international, governmental and local stakeholders in
developing world projects?
*       How and why do current development methods enhance or impede
knowledge communication?
*       To what extent can/should technology transfer include diffusion of
innovations versus co-construction of innovation?  How do culture and
knowledge communication affect it?
Contributions are sought from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary
frames, as well as from those with practical and/or theoretical insights.
Please submit 400 - 800 words abstracts by 5th September 2008 by email to
both of the editors:
Lynne Dunckley, phd.
Professor of Information Technology at the Institute for IT
Thames Valley University, UK

be somewhat different to what you submitted to the workshop, i.e. a longer,
unpacked submission will do; you can also add new elements, more data, etc.
Here are the general guidelines for the journal:
