A Deleuzoguattarian Framework for Understanding Information Systems: The Case of Document Retrieval Systems [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This paper aims to situate the study of information systems in a broader socio-political context. It is argued that information systems as any other social-technological system can serve as an agent of emancipation and change or as a site for reproduction of dominant power relations and subjugation. To illustrate this argument, concepts, such as, 'deterritorialization' and 'reterritorialization', borrowed from the philosophy of Deleuze & Guattari are adapted and applied to analyze the nature of interaction in document retrieval systems.
