Sobre o autor: My early research sought to apply Foucaultian discourse analysis to analyze how information, its users, and its uses are constructed as objects of disciplinary knowledge. My current research interests are in documentation, which seeks to rethink the importance of the concepts of the document and documentation for information studies. I am especially interested in the concepts of documentary agency and, following Deleuze, in the affective powers of documents and documentation. Foucault and Latour are also important for this project, the former because of his insistence on documentary and writing regimes, from his studies of the disciplinary society to his later work on care of the self, and the latter not only because of his explicit studies of documentation, but also because of his deployments of the concept of assemblages. Documentation shifts information studies away from the concepts of information and communication to the constructive and constitutive effects of documentary processes and technologies. My book Deflating Information: From Science Studies to Documentation was published in the fall of 2004 by the University of Toronto Press; there, I applied recent work in science studies to raise the question of the role of documentation in fact production.
