  • 2nd December 2022

 We are honoured to have Professor Stéphanie Missonier from HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne present her work along with Professor Aurélie Dudézert in our next SMART BIS/LITEM Seminar. They will be presenting their research in progress paper. 

 "The study of the Sustainable Development of IS Management: A paradoxical dialogical avatar"

The seminar will be at IS Lab, Room-H418, Etoile Building, IMT BS, Evry, Time: 10am till 11am

Below you will find the abstract of the paper and here the brochure of the event for more information. 

The study of sustainable development and IS management is a (hot) topic of current interest. It is increasingly crystallizing in the scientific and public arena around the notion of “digital sobriety” in particular. This phenomenon is structured by contradictory tensions which the world is seizing upon, each one expressing and reinterpreting it in its own way and according to its own prism. As a key topic for MIS research, the objective of our research is to identify how to study such a phenomenon defined as a 'wicked' problem. In this presentation, we will show how the study of sustainable development and MIS is a wicked problem and the paradoxical tensions that make it up. We will propose the prerequisites and avenues for scientifically studying this phenomenon and for further research.

  • 21 October 2022

Dr. Silvia Masiero, Associate professor of Information Systems at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo, join us as a guest speaker for the LITEM/SMART BIS Research seminar on the 21st of October.

The seminar will take place online from 10:30am to 12pm CET and can be accessed with this link:

Silvia Masiero will be discussing her paper on "Decolonising Critical Information Systems Research: A Subaltern Approach".

About the seminar: Theories used in the Information Systems (IS) field come in large majority from authors based in Western countries, a bias that holds for critical theories as well. Such a bias is made more problematic by the mandate of critical theory, which is meant exactly to illuminate the oppressive conditions of the status quo. Against this backdrop, this paper explores the subalternity theory approach – developed by the Subaltern Studies collective from the early 1980s – as an indigenous theory that, proposing a socially and geographically connotated narration of “history from below”, can play a major role in the effort to decolonise critical IS research. By positioning subaltern theory in the IS field, the paper offers an alternative to the Western hegemony of critical theories, exploring the potential of such an alternative to voice systematically silenced and marginalised perspectives.

Kindly RSVP if you are able to make it for this session at
