Studying codes as transforming objects

Abstract [en]

This paper addresses certain methodological aspects of a research project, in which an epistemological symmetry is assumed between humans and nonhumans, and this paper is about what implications and challenges such a premise may entail for the data collection and analysis of the study. Although I adhere strongly to the notion of epistemological symmetry in theory, there are certain aspects with such a study that pose methodological challenges and this paper sheds light upon these challenges and discusses ways to deal with them. The major concern is retaining the epistemological symmetry throughout the data collection and analysis of the study. This paper investigates the methodological aspects of a study on transformations of and by corporate codes of ethics to analyze how corporate responsibility is influenced. The paper, hence explores how we can, theoretically and practically, study a non-human actor (in this case, a code), with similar epistemological capabilities as a human actor, in a human-centered world.
