Abstract [en]

 In this paper we discuss the Swedish folk high school and the study association as organisations looking for identities and networks that are discerned in organisations with differing characteristics. Furthermore, we are analysing the relations between identities and networks. Particularly we are focusing two features. Firstly the roles that information and communication technology (ICT) has for building up and to keep networks ongoing while organising the work and educational activities. And secondly the use of information and communication technology and it-s consequences in relation to organisational identities. Methodologically our study is inspired by an ethnographic approach. The empirical base in this text is case studies of two folk high schools with dissimilar ownership and two local study association settings also grounded and run by various popular (or social) movements. These four are examples of the organisations that constitute the popular (or liberal) non-formal and voluntary educational system for adults in Sweden (in Swedish -folkbildning- - -folk- means -people-, and -bildning- means -enlightenment-). The research has mainly been conducted through interviews with employees on different organisational levels and with varying focus due to their differing tasks to handle at work, but even by observations while visiting the working places and also by analysing documents. As both of the two folk high schools are organised in one main school and one branch school respectively, it means that we totally have observed four school contexts and two study association contexts. The research project is starting from a theoretical perspective based on Anthony Giddens- ideas of society and the relations between actors and structure, between individuals and organisation; and on actor-network theory. Empirical results from the four settings - the two folk high schools and two local study associations - are analysed in relation to these theoretical perspectives. We analyse how the [net]work[s] is/are organised internally and externally in the two folk high schools, and in the local units of the two study associations. Further we discuss how identities by the means of -educational missions- are expressed in these varying contexts, and if so, how these identities are related to information and communication technology as such.
