One of the central questions in my research is what kinds of political subjects are emerging from conflicts surrounding new technology. My empirical material draws from free software and open hardware development, as well as related, technology-oriented social movements. This places me in the intersection between Science and Technology Studies (STS), social movement research, and innovation studies. Theoretically, I draw from critical theory, labour process theory, and cognitive approaches within social movement theory. This focus on epistemological questions seems particularly relevant in a setting where politics to a large extent is mediated through technology and technical expertise.
