Abstract: This working paper has two main challenges: a) resume two contemporary theories to b) glimpse new developments from their integration. First, we resume the figurational theory proposed by the German sociologist Norbert Elias trying to highlight how disruptive and innovative his ideas are. Second, we resume the developments of the (social) network studies. Third, we seek to link both theories so they aid each other achieving new devel-opments. We illustrate the last step trying to convert part of Elias’ arguments in Mozart, Zur Soziologie eines Genies in a network. The expected outcome is on the one hand, Eli-as’ figurational theory gain applications with calculus and visualization elements from the network studies. On the other hand, the social network studies gain theoretical robustness with Elias’ theory.

Abstract: Many feminist theorists have argued that technological change leads to deskilling of jobs thus providing women an opportunity to fill these positions. However, most theorists have not discussed whether the life cycle of technology has an effect on the employment of women. This paper primarily aims to examine whether we can utilize the life cycle model approach, specifically, the technology and skill-training life cycles, to throw additional light on labor and job queue theory as given by Reskin and Roos. I illustrate how computer technology has a life cycle; and that the majority of women tend to employ those programming languages at work that are in the later stages of the life cycle because programming languages that have developed at the later stage of the software technology life cycle are more deskilled. This sets the stage for occupational decline leading to a re-ranking of occupations in job queues, and facilitating the entry of women in low-tiered and less skilled jobs in the software industry.
Along with these technology cycles, a skill training cycle also evolves as the level of demand and standardization of skill changes. In the early stages of the technology, training is provided on the job or highly specialized institutes whereas in the later stages it becomes highly dispersed. Employing this model, I illustrate that the labor queue has changed as women are able to get computer training in community colleges and for-profit private institutes. One consequence is that this reinforces gender segregation as women are unable to compete with men in the labor force as they do not have an engineering degree.

"Differential associations, control theory, and the strength of weak ties—linking criminological theories with social network theory" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2018-02-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p242434_index.html>

Abstract: A long-lived debate within criminology concerns juvenile delinquents and their peer relations. The social ability model, represented by, for example, Sutherland’s theory of differential associations, argues that delinquents are to be conceived of as people with normal social capabilities. The social inability model, represented by, for example, Hirschi’s control theory, contends that delinquents lack social capabilities and are unable to engage in meaningful relationships with others. The paper assesses the plausibility of these competing conceptions of juvenile delinquents and their peer relations by using explicit and elaborate social network theory in the form of Granovetter’s theory of the strength of weak ties. The implications of this theory for the competing criminological theories are analyzed theoretically, an analysis resulting in a number of hypotheses. The hypotheses are tested empirically using a data set containing information on relations among delinquents in the form of co-offending, covering all persons under the age of 20 who were suspected of criminal offences in the Swedish city of Borlänge during a three year period. The results of the empirical analyses clearly support the social ability model.

Abstract: In this paper and presentation I outline several of the sideways moves I used in my dissertation work. While critical and postmodern epistemological orientations resonated with me more than positivist or interpretivist ones did I still felt like they were still too dependent upon the dominant meta-narratives of research. The notion of a sideways move comes from the work of Kathleen Stewart. She writes of methodological and analytical actions which create a form of address that varies from the typical knowledge projects in social science research. From this beginning I describe my methodological wayfaring and how I used New Ethnographic Writing, NonRepresentational Theory, Weak Theory, and ActorNetwork Theory in my efforts to engage in educational research
