Long Time Passing? Digital Ambivalence and the Fall and Rise of the (Global) Information Society’ Idea

Franklin, M.I. (2007). "Long Time Passing? Digital Ambivalence and the Fall and Rise of the (Global) Information Society’ Idea" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

This paper argues that the idea-set encapsulated by the fall and rise of “(global) information society” discourses and multilateral agenda-settings needs critical attention in practical terms for Human Development and Capacity Approaches, but also for theory and research into the interface between any given knowledge-power hierarchies, ideas legitimising their respective “world order of things”, propagating institutional actors and discursive--ideational and material--practices.
